This is the most creative of the pieces of jewelry I made in my metals class. In this case the idea was to make a bezel piece (a bezel is a technique of setting a stone with a metal rim that is wrapped around it to fit snug so that when rim is pushed around the stone is it locked in place)
Wrapping bezel wire around 3 stones that are 5mm in diameter is a total pain. D:<
I still haven't obtained a lace for this necklace, I was thinking a nice leather thong would go well with it.
Metals used are nickel for the base (and two of the bezels), copper bezel wire for the red stone, and bronze for the paint brush.

On a serious note to those who know me, would any of you be interested in wearing this? I don't really paint myself so it would feel inappropriate. It's free if you're interested.
