Who is this project for? Women What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep at it! The sanding of the dirt can take time as can the sanding of the silver plate to create the opening. Take your time fitting the loops at the top, taking care not to place them on the soldered join of the bezel so as not to remelt the solder on that join. On one of my settings when soldering the loop it became so hot the solder for the bezel and silver sheet re-melted and caused the inside to become slightly rounded meaning the stone didn't sit in totally flush. This can be rectified but can take a very long time, if this happens make a judgement as to if you are happy with the way the stone sits.
