Fade To Black Crystal Pendant Tutorial
Created by: Rita Hutchinson
- Arrange stones from lightest to darkest.
- Set first rivoli in top setting, pressing the bezel into place to hold the stone firm. Bending the bezel where the second setting attaches is a little tricky. Be patient.
- Set the next stone, and press the bezel to hold firm.
- Set the final rivoli, and press the bezel to hold in place.
- With the burnishing tool, go over the bezel on all 3 stones, to flatten down, and prevent snagging.
- Attach jump ring and hang from chain. For best way to open and close loops, see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF)
- See blog.rings-things.com/learn-to-make-easy-rivoli-crystal-rings for additional hints on setting stones in bezels.
