Metal Prong Challenge

The metal team, which I am a part of at Artisan Whimsy  set up a Metal Prong Challenge.  I have wanted to set  a piece of sea glass with metal prongs for a while and Staci Louise  gave us a great tutorial here, but alas what I wanted to do and what I wound up with are two different things.  My goal was simple set a piece of sea glass, I needed longer rivets which I did not have, tried making my own etc and wound up soldering a quick and easy way so I could complete the piece.  I really want to order longer rivets and try again. I love the technique the instructions were great so I hope to get better at this techniques, but for now this will have to do.  

Please check out the other participants below and on the Artisan Whimsey page.
