I rather liked the center design on page 1 and added a few beads to it and a few notes to keep the ideas straight in my head.
|Pretty stone slice|
Having decided on the design and planning how it went together was a different story. Easy enough to say that this is what you want the pendant to look like but you have to make sure that the stone stays in place. Unlike a bead that has a hole you can string a wire through, a cage is need to make sure the stone doesn't fall out.
Out comes the wire box, the tools, and get organize so you don't have to dig for anything. I like to have things at hand.

Following the design, (ok I did deviate a bit) until it was time to make the cage.
