Bezel on bezel construction


#1

Hi to all you smart, smart Orchidians! I have a question regarding
the mechanics of this technique - is the lower stone drilled with a
small hole through which a wire, soldered to the upper bezel plate,
is threaded after the lower stone is set, and then riveted to the
lower bezel to complete a solid attachment? I just can’t believe
that any adhesive is involved unless perhaps one is using a very
small bezeled stone for the upper one. On a side note, thanks to
Swest for the generous Orchid dinner raffle donation - certainly got
my attention!!! The countdown to Tucson has started - only about
50 days to go!!! And, as always, many thanks in advance for the
help on my question. JoAnn Dean (who has recently discovered the 3M
