You cannot truly appreciate the beauty of this piece unless you watch the video! The magnificence shows in the movement. It may not be comfortable to wear, but it's beautiful to show. Brava!

I like the whimsical design. Looks like great fun.
What were you soldering on at ~2:40? were they bezels for the stones?

Thanks! Yes, those were the bezels. I drilled/filed the holes just big enough for them to fit then soldered them in place.
