Jewellery techniques: setting faceted stones

Another fantastic course at Workspace Studios on how to set faceted stones, tutored by the fabulous Annie Collins and Vaune Mason This is going to be the perfect technique for me – if only I had known when I made this ring below.  I love it, but it could have been better with a few beautifully controlled settings.  Next time!
