    My Favorite Ring

    Oops, Lol... 2 notes on my bezel cup suggestion:1) your bezel will have to be taller than the stone because now the stone rides on top of the jump ring or wire. Didn't know if i made that clear. But it shouldn't be an issue because most bezel wire is wider than you need. (Or at least that's how it always seems to be in my supply box.... )B) I apparently have problems numbering sequential steps so that's why I will probably never make my own instructables!

    Suggestion... 1) Form the bezel like you did on the stone and solder it together (hard solder) and double check the finished shape on the stone. 2) Next, use a piece piece of round silver wire or use a silver jump ring and shape it to fit INSIDE your bezel. Solder that inside the bezel with medium solder. 4) Use sand paper or file to shape bottom flat and clean it up where the bezel and the jump ring meet because the curve in the wire.You now have a basic bezel cup to use in your various basic ring designs and it was faster than cutting and file out the sheet and solder, etc. Ez solder it in place and cleanup and set your stone! Ta-da! Enjoy. Good tip if you need to make multiples for that weekend craftshow or family presents, etc...
