Garnet in the Rough Brooch
This new brooch consists of a couple of new techniques that I have not tried before. First of all, I pressure set a garnet under a wooden setting. I also set up the brooch so that you can see the stone from both sides of the brooch. It also creates way for light to pass through the garnet in order to showcase the stone. This brooch measures 1 1/8" wide x 1 7/8" tall. It is also 1/4" thick.
