This is the second ring i made on my course in settings. I've actually done this kind of setting before in a ring i ade in the spring:[link]
But this time there was a lot less material around the stone, and I don't know if that helped or if I'd just got better. Anyway...it was a lot easier to set the stone this time. I'm actually thinking of making more of these. I think there's a lot of potential to this desigen. and it's easy and it's actually pretty. Although there's not much technique in it.
Well...anyway, I hope you like it.
