    Love this! Did you use Vintaj brass or some other findings? Is it two different findings?

    Guys you are making me blush–which is not easy to do–thanks for the compliments–
    the filigree ring base can be purchased at,as well as the vintage ruby cab and dragonfly–Her prices are far better than Vintaj supplies and just as good–actually they are basically the same!
    When using glue to attach a piece to a filigree, setting, or glass piece the best glue to use is
    E6000–you can get it most anywhere!
    Btw, I am happy to report that this ring was sold last week from my etsy shop––
