I decided to use copper since this was my first time...didn't want to use silver just in case I made a big goof. I measured and drew out the pattern. Then got out my trusty saw. It turned out really well. I had to cut down the tabs quite a bit but didn't have to do too much filing on the backing. YAY!!
Of course, I waited until the last minute to take the picture so the lighting isn't the best. I'm not sure where I'll go with it now. Chain, leather, stringing. Decisions, decisions....
I'm excited to see what everyone else made.

Great job! This is a method I've been wanting to try out. Maybe I'll actually get to it.ReplyDelete
Great job, your stone is so pretty, and using copper at first is very smart! I love how you tab set it, and the bail. Did you attach the cab to the copper with any glue of any kind?ReplyDelete
The copper looks great with the cab. Wear it with pride!ReplyDelete
Very nice! I think copper is perfect with this cab. Your setting looks great.ReplyDelete
It's wonderful! The copper was a great choice for this stone. I'm so happy to see that you stepped out to try tab setting. It's given me the courage to give it another try.ReplyDelete
I have seen quite a few tab set cabs on this hop and I am totally in love with this look! Love that jasper cab - you could hang it on a piece of string and it would look beautiful!ReplyDelete
Nice work. I love how you let the great colors of the cab stand out.ReplyDelete
I think the copper accents the stone perfectly. Great work.ReplyDelete
Cheryl! Your tab setting is perfect! WOW!! Beautifully done!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for participating in the challenge!
I think a leather cord with a few copper accent beads would make a great way to present this beautifully bezzeled piece. So simple, but so elegant.ReplyDelete
