Taking a break from the Commission to get used to wearing trifocals instead of 3.25 magnifiers. So this is the first work I’ve done in actual size in many many years. I have no idea what this really looks like until I see it on the big screen!

1.25 x1.25 inches. 3 hours.

Graduated Peridot with 18K.
Because they were drilled so badly it took me over six hours to string this, rather than the 45 minutes it should have taken.
