The stone in stone inlay (or whatever it's called) is really nice. I also like how the prongs on the bumblebee jasper piece echo the stone markings. Nice.

I like what you're doing. Do you drill and cut the stones? I like thecreative gem holding techniques with the little claws holding the stone.Ive done similar things to suspend gems like that. Good job SD
