This stunning black tiger eye spoke to me and I wrapped him in sterling silver and sterling silver filled wire. From the start it worked beautifully and my hands and mind were ‘in the zone’. When done, however, I was dismayed to find the stone was a little too loose for my liking and could be easily popped out. Loathe to redo, I looked for a solution. Not wanting to break the elegant lines of the piece, I opted for a single 20ga wire in the front to add security and it also added some understated detail. Just perfect. The hook and clasp are my signature hand made barrel and hook. Love how it finished.
