Stone settings and a bit of practice

At this point in the year I take a bit of time to learn some new techniques or practice a particular skill. I have decided to do some stone setting. I have quite a few interesting cabochons stashed away in a box and, although I used to set my enamels in bezel settings it is some years since I did this. Today I have made myself a ring using a very rounded rutilated Quartz cabochon that has been in my box of bits for many years. I oxidised it very heavily and this reflects in the inclusions and makes them appear more of a contrast with the rest of the stone even though they are actually quite pale.
