    Beautiful, of course! How do you know which stones will stand firing? I’ve been trying to figure that out… I have had PMC Silver for over a year, but I’m scared of it!

    Very lovely! How proud you must be! I love the band! I have used CZ in my PMC pendants, the real stones you have to know which ones will stand up to the heat! I would be afraid real one would crack or change color.

    Another winner Arja! You created such a nice modern design! Did you use q bezel strip or set the stone with syringe clay? Anyway, I love this ring!
