What’s on the bench – following the story of Wendy’s rings – step 5: making settings!
For the bigger diamond and sapphire in Wendy’s ring, I’m hand-making individual settings!!
They start as strips of metal bent into tube shapes and then hammered into cone shapes – each one individually fitted to each stone.
I’m using a strip of white gold for the diamond and yellow gold for the sapphire – each new strip of metal contains the metal from Wendy’s original rings!
