Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is an intermediate tutorial, it would be helpful to already know the basics of wirework, for example forming a loop, however detailed instruction and step by step photos are included

Pattern Description:

By using circles to form a bezel wire, this design is not only strong but also creates an intricate pattern which frames the stone.
This versatile Bezel setting uses relatively small amounts of wire and can be used to set a variety of shapes, although it lends itself best to circular and oval stones.
