I have been working on a setting for a ring. A setting for a very big square stone. And it is driving me crazy. I have spent 6 hours on it so far. And all I have to show for it so far is a square with some pointy bits sticking out in really weird directions.
The problem when you are working on a new style, something that you have never done before and no one you know has done before is that you kind of work things out as you go along. This is time consuming, and I don't have that much time.
But today after 3 hours I thought out a much better way to do it. Using round wire instead of square wire. So tomorrow I start again.
Do it again, Do it right is my motto. But now, crap tv, cup of tea and a cookie
The above view is from where I went running at lunch today. Perfect running weather. 19 degrees, chilly wind and bright blue skies. You can't fault it.
