Add a touch of shimmer to earthy blue turquoise with this fun necklace project! It’s a new twist on the popular stone-on-stone technique, resulting in an elegant CZ embellishment framed in silver and embedded in a gorgeous turquoise cabochon. We’ll build a simple textured frame for our dressed-up stone, making sure to review best practices for sizing and fabricating bezels, then add chain that mimics its oblong shape. We’ll top it all off with a handmade clasp before setting the stone using simple tools and an uncomplicated technique that will demystify setting corners once and for all. This is an intermediate workshop; students should be able to successfully solder unattended and be proficient in the use of a jeweler’s saw.
