Setting Baguette Sapphires
This is the way I received the pieces one month to the day after the 3 week due date was past.
Another shot out of the bag
After 3.5 hours of re soldering heads to straighten things out, cleaning up solder, & polishing the parts.
Set in the wax to start setting
Inner sections lowered to accomodate deep sapphires
Round burred to open up underneath
flat graver to open corners
Better look at the openings in the base
Bevel tops of the prongs for easier pushing
first stone set
First pendant done
