    Project achieved :-)

    A thick silver thread was cut, shaped (grossly!) as a C clasp, then soldered with the "solder it" paste.

    I had to redo it because I didn't hold it correctly while paste solder fused, which caused it to lay down, Grrrr!

    For the enamel, pearlized nail polish applied with a tooth pick, covered when dry with top coat nail polish.
    Colored with permanent marker then matted with fiberglass brush!

    Last, set a tiny red stone for the eye ; -)
