Advanced Pave

Today we started the foray into pave. There are problems with this first attempt of mine, but at least it's relatively coming together. We will do this again in 3 weeks after hand engraving, and apparently it will be a lot easier to do then.... Here are photos from my iphone all throughout the process. First drilled holes and on from there. Tomorrow I will use the beading tool to round out the beads and then file the top to make the triangle shape not look as awkward as it does now.

Also, all of these pictures were taken using my 10 power loupe, so a lot of problems that are standing out in these photos, aren't visible to the naked eye....though the problems shouldn't be there anyway, I just wanted to make that disclaimer.
