Sketching A Grid

In order for this best buckle to look right, the stone must be centered.  I sketched a grid right onto the copper so that I could center the oval (stone).  The grid is in pencil, and will serve a dual purpose in that I can tweek my "stairstep outline" before riveting it to the brass backplate.  This is an example of what I call the vanishing sketch.
