I’ve always wanted to learn how to make a wire wrapped stone setting for a cabochon. I found an awesome video that shows you step by step exactly how to do it, so I finally gave it a try! I am just thrilled to bits at how my first attempt came out – I have been wanting to use this lovely turquoise cabochon for so long now.
Setting a cabochon in a wire-wrapped bezel is a somewhat involved process – the video is almost 30 minutes long – but I was surprised that it wasn’t nearly as difficult as I expected it would be. I encourage you to give it a try too!
