That can very often prove to be a daunting task. It is typical for any profession and craft that the more you learn, the more you realize you have to learn. This is certainly the case for me. And still, I can see I am getting better for every piece I am making.
This one took me hours upon hours of making. I do hope that the work involved somehow can be seen in the finished product. That is sadly not always the case. I am very pleased with how this turned out though. This is herringbone wrapped amethyst and new jade, handcrafted chain and a Murano glass heart.
