New Bling

Ta Da! Here is my new ring I made in jewelry class. It took 7 weeks to complete and a lot of help from my teacher. This is my first attempt at a prong setting with a faceted stone. The stone is a tourmaline that I bought here in Hong Kong. I was very worried because when we went to set the stone, the setting wasn't 100% symmetrical. I truly thought my teacher would say it was a lost cause. She was so sweet and stayed and extra hour after class to tweak it and help me set the stone. It worked! It is not 100% perfect, but still looks good for a first attempt. Not sure I would be able to do it again on my own. It was a good learning experience.
