Before a big important job (like setting precious stones in gold) I like to do a bit of a warm up. I suppose it's a bit like doing scales on the piano before playing Rachmaninov's 3rd or doing a few
Actually, for a warm up, I'm rather pleased with the results.
This one is a mix of sterling silver spheres and a sparkly 4mm diameter aquamarine.
Time for round 2 with the gold and topaz I think!
