Chrisophrase and Irish Setter

I received an email from Martha Harbison that she received her chrisophrase pendant. She was _very_ pleased.

It's a stone that was cut by Llolyd Eshbach, so it's a beautiful painting and it's been in my collection for a while. The pendant is blackened silver set with the chrisophrase and a marquise cut emerald, a round faceted emerald and a round faceted black diamond. Size is about 2 inches.

I've been working forever on a bas-relief pendant of an Irish setter in a field.  It needs a little more work, but tonight after working on it most of the day, I feel like I really caught what I wanted.  It needs to be even more perfect then usual because it's for a woman who breeds exceptional setters.  And getting the 3D feel of the field was it's own challenge.

Still on the mend but not quite mended.
