Today's ring, the cast sterling silver set with blue topaz teardrop with added granular prongs, I actually made the other day when working with the other cast ring. I love how this one turned out, and I was careful to place the granular fine silver close enough to actually function as prongs.
Today I am working on another piece, still playing with trying to use granulation to set stones, but this time trying to set cabochons on flat sterling. This will require more success than I have had so far getting granulation where I want it on my silver. Hence, posting the other ring as today's! We will see where...IF...this ends up.
