Cathy, Otto Frei has brass ring blanks, but they do not have any
seats cut as they are for bright setting of small stones. However, I
have several brass ring blanks that came with my Blaine DVD’s which
I am not using. Instead, I cast some sterling rings with the seats
cut following Kate Wolf’s instructions. This gave me practice in
cutting the seats, and in setting the stones.
As I am not using the brass blanks I will be glad to send them to
you, no charge, just a friend helping out a friend. Send me Your
address off line and I will drop them in the mail for you. They
consist of four with 8X6mm oval seats, and four for prong settings.
I will also include the CZ’s whichI am not using. Great for practice
as they are hard stones and no danger of chipping.
