A bezel setting virgin that is :o)
I spent a good 3 hours today cutting bezel wire 2 short ~ not being able to line the cut up enough for the solder to flow ~ figuring out how to cut the bezel wire so it came together with no gaps...duh!
And last, but not least -- i set the stone b4 i thought about making a bail, so i drilled a hole and used one of the commercial bails i had.
Normally, I would be stressed to the max after 3 hours but
I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!
Since I started playing with solder not long ago, I new *something more* was ahead. I could taste it but, couldn't quite *see* it, yet.
When I first started making jewelry, i would look around etsy admiring this type of work/art, and thought" if only i had the patience to do that!"
I never thought, in a million years, I would be able to relax enough while trying.
Will post pic's tomorrow ~ the piece is in the tumbler.
