I just had to share - I made this for my partner in the FOC Wist Swap.  Everything is handmade, and started out as sterling silver sheet and wire.  I even made the chain!  The entire project took about 15 hours, especially since I am new to metalsmithing.  Smiley  c/c welcome, as always.

The whole project:

Let me know what you think.  Smiley
