Stone Setting Projects - A New Journey of Jewelry Design




Divine Necklace - 925 Sterling Silver (7.5 % anti tarnish formulation) & 14K Gold Filled with Citrine cabochon, Amethyst and Kyanite






Neon Sapphire Bracelet - 925 Sterling Silver (7.5 % anti tarnish formulation) with Jay Jay cabochon and Orange Sapphire


At last, i had the chance to introduce my new pieces that took me almost a 'chaotic' week to finish embellished. The bracelet is my 1st piece that i incorporate bezel setting into my design. It seems tough to construct the stepped bezel at first but after a few trials (and silver wastage) i be able to learn a good way of doing it but still need to improvise.

For both design i use 13ga sterling silver with special anti tarnish formulation (except for the bezel strip, Argentium silver) and i must say that i really really love it due to it properties that are better than Argentium and Sterling (though i still like working with all silver alloys). And the silver is still on my anti tarnish observation..

Wonderful new mix of techniques! I love the heavy gauge wire, but it's so expensive right now.
