Silver Lining

April 25, 2015 § 1 Comment

Usually in the Spring, all the colors come out to play. Since I’m still wandering with a black cloud hovering over my head. I gravitated towards the dark side for some pieces. Not that that’s a bad thing, it’s just where I went. I started with some moonstones. Generally when I make bezels, they look something like this:Unoxidized Bezels

Since I was feeling moody, I kinda wanted to see how different the moonstones would look if I set them with a dark back. Like that stupid cloud.
