I wanted to have a go at setting a bezel on a pendant and here’s what I came up with:
The glass stone in the setting is only about 3mm across which shows just how small and fiddly this was. Oh making the bezel itself really drove me to distraction. I ended up buying a special bezel trivet (ring stick) so I had something small to shape the bezel with.
The Pendant itself was just a cut-out circle of sterling silver which I then had at with with my teeny tiny planishing hammer.
(Note for next time: trying to solder onto a bobbly surface is much harder than you’d think. Don’t planish the bit you want to solder your bezel to to make your life easier)
What do you think of it?
