Andrew received an email from an At The Bench member asking how a particular pendant was made. It's like being a dectective when Andrew receives these photos. Not being able to examine the item from all sides, there are some tell tale signs that Andrew observes.
The photo shows a cabochon seemingly held in place by a textured place with small melted heat rivets. Andrew recreates a pendant using what he thinks is a similar technique but using a round facetted stone and a piece of Mokume Gane.
