Finishing the piece…
The last of the major elements to be attached were the secondary border wires, and two additional platinum tubes at the points.
Now it was time to add the granulation, which was done in two separate firings, the top, and the back.
The last step before setting, was soldering on the two finials.
So there you have it! My very first competed jewelry project in my new studio!
