I am trying find a solution to an issue I am having with a cabochon
I am trying to set into a bezel setting for making a ring.
The stone is not entirely flat on the bottom and I do not want to
risk snapping the stone and want the setting to be secure.
I need some way to fill in the space under the stone where it isn’t
flat that will last and survive washing in warm water.
I was thinking us using Thermo Plastic to fill in the gap but am not
sure if this would do well washing in warm water with the ring on.
The bezel will be pushed over the stone and be quite flush against
it so I don’t “think” the material would be able to “ooze” out around
the bezel edge, but I have never used thermo plastic so am unsure of
how it behaves.
I am looking for advice on either this medium or if you have another
suggestion I would love to hear it.
Here is an image of the stone
