This one has been on the back burner for awhile, but after I figured out how to install the tuners (glass beads) and since I was working on the Conquistador guitar (dichroic stringers and black grout), I went ahead and worked on this one at the same time.

OHMYGOODNESS, SILVA!!!! This one is my favorite. Looks soooooo sexy. The black rocks are so shiny - what did you use to seal it? This one is simply GORGEOUS!!!!! Absolutely LOVE it.

Oooh thank you SLOW! I sealed it with regular grout sealer but then I varnished it with Liquitex glossy varnish.

That is absolutely beautiful! I love your color choices. It's very subtle. I think my favorite bit is the full necklace.So eye catching and lovely.

Thanks, you all! oldcrafty, it isn't easy, grouting around all that stuff. All different levels. I just keep working at it, using various techniques. I use sponges, then fingers, then a cotton cloth, toothpicks, and sometimes even a little makeup brush. Finicky work.

Yeah, I've also come back for second and third looks. SILVA - you really did a number on this one. It is so over the top gorgeous I can't quit looking at it. I LOVE the glossy look too. Re tools - a toothbrush and sometimes a metal brush helps. I seem to always create grouting nightmares too. Do you have a buyer for this one?
