Here's the first piece, which will be listed in my shop this evening. It's a piece of Candelaria Hills Variscite surrounded by leaves and fronds - and even a flower!
I probably made that little silver flower last fall, when I was playing with my disc cutter. It ended up in a jar where I put odds and ends. I suddenly remembered it just as I was deciding where to place the leaves around the setting and thought it with fit right in. (If you look at the variscite and use your imagination, I can see a couple of flowers in the patterns of the stone.)
And as a final touch, I added a little contrariwise dragonfly on the underside.
UPDATE: If you want to see more photos, here's the listing.
