I really like tube setting, it’s a great way of adding a little twinkly to your jewellery using faceted gems and isn’t too difficult to master or too expensive to do. Tube setting is now part of our 3 day Stone Setting workshop.
This is my Poppy Ring, the design is rolled into the silver and the method I use means each ring will be different – I then added the tube setting and set a small 3mm faceted garnet to add a little sparkle.
This ring is £32 but may not have reached my website by the time you read this 😉
A glimmer of amethyst showing through branches – each pair will be different.
These earrings and the necklace below will be part of my new Wisp range and I wanted to show you them although the range is not on my website yet.
They are based on the stories of the Will of the Wisp – the glimmer seen through the trees leading travellers away from the safe paths, a flickering light always just out of reach.
Wisp Pendant – A Glimmer though the Woods
A fold formed pendant, darkened with liver of sulphur giving the idea of woodlands – tree trunks, with a dangle of silver tube set with a citrine for the wisp – ever moving.
Join me tomorrow for day 5 of this week of settings.
