Additional Information
This is an excellent project for developing confidence and finesse with the jeweler’s saw as you pierce and saw an intricate design in a backplate using a very fine saw blade. You’ll learn how to fabricate a tube setting from scratch, using thick-walled tubing and cutting a seat for a large gemstone using a setting bur. The unusual bail is made from a large jump ring and tubing pulls it all together.
