Gemstone Necklace with Sterling Silver - part 3


I am slowly getting there.
Yesterday my silver wire arrived and I got going with the wrapping.

I strung the beads onto the wire and add a spiral as a finish.
The little sea life beads were wire wrapped on to the silver

The next step will be the liver of sulpher bath.
The "only" silver elements I will simply pop into the bath
but on the howlith piece I will apply the LOS with a small
brush. I read that is a soft stone and am scared that the
sulpher will be soaked up into the stone and turn the
nice blue into a ghasty grey. 

Wish me luck.
