Another piece finished

A while back I did a jewelery course with Stephanie Lee through 'Art Queen' BevLea Ross.  I think I have only missed one of these Art Retreats.  They are so good, and I have never had a bad class.
I have made a little piece based on what I learnt.  I never thought I would be the kind of person to solder anything.  Prior to taking this class I didn't even own any tools!  Now I have a dremel and all sorts of things - like a grinder :0).

The base plate is soldered brass, which I have hand cut to size and then filed.  I have soldered a copper ring on to form the bezel (this is the technique that Stephanie so patiently showed us) which was then filled with an image and resin.
