Note to self

When you make a bezel slightly too small for the stone, and it still won’t quite fit even after you’ve filed out from the inside of the setting, try greasing the stone with burr-life, then tap it gently in with a wooden mallet.

Still can’t quite believe that worked. I thought I was never going to get that stone in…

  1. I guess you can be sure it won’t come out again!

  2. It’s amazing how many of life’s little problems can be sorted with a bit of grease or a good tap with a hammer!

  3. I love it when problem solving pays off 🙂
