Flair for the Dramatic


12mm diameter - Mosaic gold in sterling silver

I wasn't sure when I purchased these mountings if I would like them.  They seemed just a bit fussy to me. I really like them in person though!  

Having said that, they are a challenge to work with. Each of the tiny pieces has to be custom cut to lay perfectly against the edge of the mounting. With such a small space, the percentage of pieces that I have to do this with is much higher than on larger pieces. In addition, the curvature of the edge is tighter than larger pieces, which also increases the difficulty.  I think it's worth it though, as to my eye these look great.
