    They are both beautiful….I’d be hard pressed to say which I liked better! I love them both!

    Yes, both are beautiful, but…the brass setting you show is a favorite of mine, so I like it best!

    Very fine work! I like the golden brass best to pick up the golden yellow scrolls in the cab, but love the dashes of blue from the seed beads on the bronze. Such a dilemma! Still leaning toward the brass. Has a dreamy, gilded feel for the dreamy cab– a nice find, btw.

    Oh, and the golden brass setting fits the cab better. So that settles it for me.

    Awesome chainwork! Your Nouveau cab looks gorgeous in both settings and chains. The cab itself really pops with the contrasting black beaded chai, However, I love the Arte Deco loveliness of the brass setting and chain. On that merit, I choose the brass chain.

    Brass wins! I didn’t do a good job setting the black one-I used loctite glue, and it’s hard to position the stone perfectly when you only get one chance. That stuff sets up fast. Thanks for liking them.

    I like both also. I was leaning to the black until I saw the brass. The brass makes the cab look even more mystical and fits the time period.

    I’m kinda late to the party but I like the contrast of the dark. The brass is beautiful too. No way to go wrong in my opinion.

    Very, very nice. Just making the chain would throw me off. Kudos!!

    I love them BOTH, but if I HAD to choose, it would be the Brass one. I love how the leaves from the setting look like it was intended to continue on from the cab. I just love it!:)

    I love the brass/bronze combo. The chain is awesome! The lady looks like she is wearing a crown :)

    Hey, you might want to try E6000 for gluing cabs. It takes longer to dry & cure so you can position things in time. Once dry, it’s very strong.

Add your thoughts!
