Hey! I am really glad you like it!

The way that I make the bezel on a lot of my pieces is a chainmaille weave called a half persian 3-1: a tutorial on how to do it is viewed here: [link] The weave forms a trough on one side that holds onto beads and cabochons very nicely (with the reinforcement of a two-part industrial epoxy on the back to keep it secured)

This may be out of place, but I thout I'd ask any way "what harm cold it do". How do you go about painting, protekting(resin?), over all creating your dragon eyes? Im a craftsmen just starting out... and wanted to maby incorprat something like what you did with the eye into some of my works.

I use glass cabs and paint them with a variety of paints and enamels. There are a lot of great tutorials on youtube :)
