Remember the tutorial on how to use large bail forming pliers? The design I showed as an example of how to use this great tool was not complete at the time.  I actually didn't have the right sized sterling silver chain on hand. So I couldn't show the finished piece.  Well, here it is finally complete and in my Etsy store!  (This is a Life Collection piece where 100% of net proceeds will go to cancer research).

The faceted cubic zirconia was such an unusual shape and I have to admit it took me a while to come up with a design.  Sometimes, designs come quickly. At other times, it pays to let your subconscious mull over possibilities.
