Now that the two main pieces – the Ammolite’s Bezel and repousse gold – have been welded together, I can begin the wax carving step for the accent stones. This will hold the round Mexican Fire Opal and accent diamonds to tie the design together. The wax will then be cast into precious metals.
A marquise diamond will be used to accent the brooch on the bottom. This also requires a custom setting that will be carved in wax by hand.
