Stone Setting Fun

Sanding a Hammered Bezel top and JJ with Karen Richards

High Top Stone Setting and Gypsy Settings

Back from another outstanding class session at Brighton Beads. Jiro Masuda was back and this time he was teaching stone setting. We did some tubes, prongs, hammered bezels, and gypsy settings. It was a blast and we moved at a good pace to get things accomplished. By far my favorite was the gypsy setting done from the back of the metal. I included some pictures of the class samples. I’m sure I will be doing plenty of this with faceted gemstones in the near future.
