Lovin' the color of your new Spinel. Interesting piece (and story). Like many a good story, it invites questions.
1mm (or smaller?) round Omega? Regular Omega shell would be kinda armadillo-ish pieces, methinks.
Also, what's between the coil and center stone? In each corner. Look kinda triangular, gemmy, maybe facetted? Reflections in a bright-cut bowl?
Thanks for sharing.
