Thank you all for your suggestions and help. You’ll be pleased to
know that I achieved success on my first piece :-). It’s a choker
comprised of fancy sapphires in a rainbow going blue, purple, pink,
orange then yellow, for my friend’s baby girl. I’ve got an extension
on the back so that when she gets older, and if she still likes it,
she can continue to wear it.
(The stones came from www.acstones.com, thanks Barb
