Sterling silver, tab setting.
This necklace gave me a cut. It was a practice piece, so I didn't bother looking for a nice, thick gauge of silver. The first thing I grabbed was really thing (maybe 24 or 26 gauge, which is tiny!). As I was sanding it, it slipped and cut into my thumb! Whoops. Thankfully, it was more annoying than it was painful.
Anyhoo, the only soldering this required was a piece of wire for the spiral and a jump ring. The tabs were cut out of the backplate.
