I have been experimenting with setting clear or transparent "stones"
in sterling silver bezels and was hoping to acquire some wisdom from
this AMAZING forum.
As one of my biggest concerns with my work is durability and
longevity, I have been testing how my pieces wear and tarnish and
was quick to notice tarnish behind the stones. Thus far, I have
tried: paint, enamel, colored resin, and raising the fine silver
behind the =93stones=94 in an effort to cover or prevent the unsightly
I was curious if anyone else has come up with methods to hide or
prevent this from occurring to the inside of their bezels?
Thanks ahead of time, and thanks for all the previous letters I have
read and learned so much from!!
