    Default First Items Sent for Hallmarking!

    Some of these were made ages ago but have sent them with new stuff too. (Quick pics to remind me what I sent so not good quality!)

    Stone cabs for rings, clockwise from top;
    Malachite - bought at IJL and as it is so soft I could sand the edges to fit better in the bezel - which was useful as I made the bezel to take into account George's comment about making sure the edges match neatly!
    Blue Tiger's eye (although it has a golden patch in it too). Cut and polished by me 20 years ago! And the ring bezel for that matches neatly too otherwise it would have been a plain bezel. But I think the crown effect will suit it better as it is a very high cab and it will look almost medieval (sp?). Will probably oxidise it too.
    Agate (dyed probably) bought at a Gem n Bead fair from the 5 for a 1 box
    Labradorite cab - gorgeous milky green flash 6 at IJL
    Agate or Obsidian - black circular conical (!) cab - from the 5 for a 1 box. Thought it would be a fun shape for a ring. There was only one in the box otherwise I would have bought more.
    Labradorite cab - fantastic deep blue flash (may have to keep this one after I see it set )

    Cool!!!

    Can't wait to see those rings finished - they look fab. Love the flower pendants as well

    Out of interest, where are you having your maille pieces marked, or are you having them lasered? I still can't decide what I like best for this.

    Likewise Jules - this is a definite for next year for me. We can 'talk' one another through it when the time comes
