I created this pendant as a long overdue birthday/mother's day/Christmas gift for my mom, lol!  It's all hand-fabricated out of sterling silver.  The stones are an ammonite negative and a garnet.

Thanks so much!  I'll be starting on a cuff bracelet next and using a trilobite fossil.  I have a fossil addiction!

I go to a studio every thursday evening which has all the equipment I need.  I used a jewelers saw, torch, pickle (acid), flex-shaft (for polishing).  So yes, a lot of tools were used to make such a small pendant.   Grin
