Week 50-Woven Silver and Labradorite Necklace

I'm still playing around with forming woven wires into shapes. This started with a gorgeous 18mm x 13mm AAA labradorite cabochon that was netted onto a soldered frame. When I wove the 18 gauge wires together I attached the cab frame to the weaving in several places as I went along and then carefully worked the woven wires into shape with mostly my fingers. I applied a liver of sulfur patina to the whole piece to enhance the details.
