This custom commission circlet has a high polish brass base. It
features a stylized brass plate with seven cabochon gemstones set
in handmade silver bezels. Each silver bezel was hand formed and
made to fit the individual stones. After soldering the bezels onto
the brass plate I riveted the plate to the circlet base using sterling
silver wire. The stones from the center out are Iolite
(6mm x 8mm), Garnet
(6mm x 8mm), Lapis
Lazuli (8mm x 10mm), and Opal
Triplet (6mm x 8mm). Before setting the stones I filed and sanded
the entire circlet by hand then polished it for a high shine.
I can make a similar piece with different stones or with a different
metal for the circlet base.
