Only one progress shot this time and no sketch. I started out by cutting some circles from silver sheet and selecting a round white quartz. I formed the silver circles and made bezels for all three and soldered them down. Then I stamped, cut out, and soldered the pieces onto the back of the brooch (mom's birthday and my makers mark).
Still experimenting with the pins. This one has a place to string a chain in case mom wants to wear it as a pendant.
Finally I set the stones, giving one of the bezels a hammered texture. I finished this one with a brushed Liver of Sulfur patina and wax.
Hope she likes it!
