What Should This Be?
by Lisa Briseno-Croome.
Brooch? Necklace? This is a large scrolled setting which I have set an oval glass cabochon on and embellished it with a stamping that I cut in half and formed around the cab.
All brass was raw brass and I used Liver of Sulfur to blacken it.
It measures 7.5cm x 5cm. It is a substantial piece.
I’d really like to know what you would make with it.

what it should be
I would put one of those findings on that allows you to use as a pin or on a chaing
This piece makes me think of a brooch so it may be more fun to create a necklace around it!
This large focal piece requires a substantial setting. Use the openings on the sides to attach multiple strands of equally substantial brass chain and beads in red and brass. This screams to be a showcase piece! Good luck … and let us know via photo how this piece evolves!
It looks like it wants to be a necklace.
With som more red and brass bead caps. And some chain in between.
Thank you all!

Thanks all for your comments. I made it into a necklace (for now). You can see it at this link. ny-image2.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.228714070.jpg
I know that I may redo it at a later date, but until then – I think it’s happy like this.
I do like the pin to chain option too. Might try this.
I think your necklace turned out great! That was definately the right thing to do with it. I like that you added the red beads a little further up on the chain too.
