Lovely colour combination, it gives off an old world feel even without knowing it was based off a piece of vintage jewelry, must be the combination of a perfect circle, the crocheting and the use of pearls
I'm curious, since I can't quite tell for sure from the photograph, but how is the aventurine cabochon secured? It looks like it could be secured by the knitted wire being on both sides of the cabochon, if so, that is very neat idea. Lovely knitted wire by the way, quite painstaking I bet to make.
Neat idea, keeps it flatter than what I was thinking. Out of curiosity have you drilled any of your stones to thread wire through? I was wondering, if so, as to what type of bits/drill bits are used,as I would imagine that the bits are more like grinding bits than auger style (your "standard" drill bit).
