Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is an advanced tutorial, you should have a good basic knowledge and understanding of wirework and be able to form loops and coil wire, however detailed instruction and step by step photos are included

Pattern Description:

Learn to create this pretty bezel setting. By using whipstitch to secure the structure wires and spirals in place you create an interesting pattern both on the front and back of this reversible design. Using spiral shapes around the sides, allows you to see parts of the stone, adding interest to the design. For this tutorial I have used a circular cab, you could use any shape you like as long as the sides are of a fairly even thickness.

This tutorial is based on a round cab, although once you have mastered the design it is possible to set uneven shapes or even pointed back faceted stones. Whilst learning the technique though I recommend using flat evenly shaped cabs.

The last picture in the sequence shows the back of the pendant.

This is an advanced lesson with 44 detailed steps over 21 pages, it includes lots of clear crisp photos making it an easy to follow guide.
