Beautiful work, Chris, is that an Amethyst?

So now the next step for you is to send this out to a shop that will cast this for you? How does that operation work? What material have you chosen for this creation? How long does something like that take to be processed for you?

Needless to say I've always been interested in jewelry making but never dove in -  :)

Thanks for sharing,
Dave
