Fabricating Jewelry Settings With Wirework and Metal Clay

In my last blog, Jewelry Findings from Tripps and Rio Grande Arrived Today! I purchased a variety of settings from Tripps.com and Riogrande.com. None of the settings were a perfect fit for my native cut gemstones. I began to research ways to create settings for rings and I found two methods that did not require years of jewelry training: wirework settings and metal clay settings.




Wirework Settings

I Googled "wirework settings" and found two settings that could work with my stones, the Classic Prong Ring from jewelrylessons.com and the Solitaire Faceted Ring, from wire-jewelry-lessons.com.
