open back bezel

fire in ice ring, lepidochrosite, sterling and fine silver; kimberly nogueira 2011
i'm teaching myself to set stones--here is my first open back bezel piece. i love the clean, modern look of it. are you familiar with lepidocrosite in quartz?  it is a bewitchingly glittery inclusion in clear quartz, whose red flecks of iron oxide dance and glow as you move the stone.
