I completed my second project at the Appalachian Rock Shop in Harmony, PA. I purchased this beautiful, polished, Ohio flint stone at the shop and set it in a hand crafted sterling silver setting, opting this time for prongs rather than a bezel setting. It gave me the opportunity to try something new in stone setting. Overall, I am very happy with the end result, but would have done the bail a little differently - perhaps added on some wire or more silver balls. I may ask my instructor, Jo Naleppa, about making these changes. Otherwise, I accomplished a different look from my last stone pendant. Thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you stop back. Anita
