Amber in Chantilly Lace

Project Description

What was your source for this jewelry project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Chantilly Lace Ring Link to website or photo Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? I've never set an amber pendant before. Amber is so soft that it can even scratch by being worn on cloth surfaces, and it flakes easily. So it's necessary to adapt to the stone, design-wise and tool-wise. At one point I was really afraid that I might break it and I'm more than happy how beautifully it turned out in the end. What advice would you give someone starting this project? First practice the RAW stirch with wire. It's different than RAW with thread. And if you want to set a stone, begin with a sturdier one.
