The follow up from my last post is this bracelet. All the stones came in and I picked these to fill the cups.
To mount these stones I chose to get this cup tool. The concave end will bend the prongs quickly and evenly.
The tool has a comfortable handle and makes the job go quickly.
Place the tool over the cup with the stone centered. Make sure the setting is on a firm surface. I grabbed a magazine this time and will use a bench block next time.
The finished product is attractive and should sell well. If you are wondering what happened to the big necklace, it was found to be made incorrectly and the stones could not fit without overlapping.
Matching earrings, lever back and post. Next post I will show how to hold these for mounting.
