That is very cool.
Question is, how exactly do you make something like that? I am talking about the metal work. I am gonna start working with metal soon, just to experiment. I have been wondering about it for a while.

I run www.amanelle.com and I'm a part time student.


perilously_divine-- Cut a pice of metal (I think I used 24gage silver) bigger than the stone. Fit bezel wire around the stone, then solder the bezel closed. Solder the bezel to the piece of metal you cut. Take twisted wire (you can buy it or make your own) fit it around the bezel then solder the wire closed just like you did the bezel. Push the twisted wire over the bezel and solder it to the metal piece. Solder the ring shank to the back of the metal (you can buy shanks or make them if you have a ring mandrel. After you are done soldering everything set the stone into the bezel you made and use a bezel roller to roll the bezel around the stone. Then polish. After each soldering you should let the piece you just soldered set in pickle. If you've never used a torch before I strongly suggest finding a silversmithing or jewelry making class. I've taken classes at a local art center and a community college. Also any books by Tim McCreight are to read first.
