Bezel Set Ring

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? This is probably the most difficult project I've made to date and I am thrilled with how it turned out. I also made a successful repair on it which was a good learning experience. The bezel cracked in the kiln. With some encouragement and good advice from my teacher, Cindy Pankopf, I was able to overcome this set back. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient and sand carefully. Go through each of the grits successively to get a nice shine on finished piece.
