Oh, but I had such a treat today. A whole day, all to myself, nothing I had to do and no one around to change that! So the tube settings came out for real; they sure do go a lot faster in my imagination. But they went fine, no major surprises, and I have a very nice eudialite and corundum pendant to show for it.
The eudialite is an interesting shape; not quite a shield, not quite a triangle, but somewhere between the two and very nicely shaped. I added half a dozen tube set 3mm faceted corundum to it along one side, and I'm very pleased with how it came out.
I made a simple two in one chain and I'm wearing it now. Such are the perks of a day at the bench.
