Additional Information
Description:
Add a touch of shimmer to earthy blue turquoise with an elegant CZ embellishment framed in silver in this twist on the popular stone-on-stone technique. We’ll build a simple textured frame for our dressed-up cabochon, making sure to review best practices for sizing and fabricating bezels, then add chain that mimics its oblong shape. We’ll top it off with a handmade clasp then set the stone using simple tools and an uncomplicated technique that will demystify setting corners once and for all.
