"Hey Jude, don't make it bad/ Take a sad song and make it better..." - "Hey Jude", The Beatles
I'd waited quite a long time to get around to using this epically gorgeous seraphinite cabochon. So it was with dismay that I'd decided all it really needed was a simple sterling silver wire wrap, only to find... it snapped in half as I was setting it. Solution? Make it better, of course. I "glued" the broken pieces back together and then coated the entire pendant with clear enamel, waited until it was cured rock-hard (harder than the stone itself, it would appear), then beaded and built around it with an additional tiny seraphinite bead. "Hey Jude" was playing in my head pretty much the whole time I was working on this project, hence the name.
Could I have hidden the break altogether? Yes. I could have. I did not.
