Gemstone Prong Ear Jackets Tutorial — Maker Monologues
I love seeing raw gemstones in prong settings. There’s something about the juxtaposition of raw earth and polished metal that satisfies my soul! Plus, let’s face it, it’s a little more difficult to bezel set raw gems because of their rough shape.
I began this project months ago, I was initially just going to make some simple double circle ear jackets. So I made the silver circles and they just sat in my studio. The other day I found them and got re-inspired to step up the initial design. And, I just really wanted to play with some gemstones!
