The stones sit in a smooth bezel. Terry added a hand-braided rope of silver to the base of the stones. Martinez also added one braided silver rope to the sides of the top and bottom, one stamped crescent shape to the tops, and three star stamped beads to the bottoms, making the over all design look like turtles.
