I am trying to figure out a way to use prong, tube, or bezel set
stones with enamel. I
I fudge it by drilling a hole in the enamel piece (before enameling,
of course) and then I solder a bezel cup to a mini bolt, set the
stone (mostly cabs but you could tube set faceted like this), run it
clear through and finish off with the nut on the back. I cup burr
the nut after using Stay-tite for a smooth finish. I have some small
computer pieces that I’ve attached to the enamel this way, as well.
You can take a look at my website to see some examples. The enamels
are on the last page (contact) and you have to click on the button
where there is no writing (and sorry, no thumbnails)…I need to
redo the website but haven’t had time yet.
