Hello Thanks for the compliment. There is a very small hole drilled and the clasp opens up and has two pins on it that push back though the pendant.

Three of the pendants are made from avonites studio collection whic the picture really doesn't show but this material is transparent and really sparkels in the light. The 4th pendant is made from a hudson product called mystera.The color is (buckskin)

Jim, those are all stunning pieces. What tool(s) are you using to turn avonite?
