Rainbow snake!

Four more stone settings

12 bezel settings

Thirty-eight more to go..... The I get to install a solar tube in my kitchen! By the way, i made all of the cabs used in these pendants and earrings, too. They're glass. Some are dichroic and the striped ones were just a neat technique I learned about earlier this year.

Starting to feel lived in!

Still needed: proper ventilation.

Bench in progress.....

Someone mentioned that they're tired of looking at that picture from November AND ps, it's been nearly five months since I've updated this blog. So. Here goes an attempt to get back in the swing of sharing things that I'm working on.... Because there's been a lot of new stuff going on :)
