How I Rang in the New Year – With New Work

I spent December 31st and January 1st in the studio finishing one collar and making another one.  Here are the results:

Designing Collar VI
Getting the right curves using my blowhorn stake
Everything is all soldered, just need to be cleaned up and formed.
All clean and formed, just needs to be oxidized and the stone set.

Check out this awesome bezel action. Why does it have to be like all the other bezels out there?
Look how tired I look after all this work!
