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.
