I have had this Moroccan Amethyst for quite some time, after buying it from a lapidary artist.
This weekend I took a tube bezel & flush set workshop from Joy Raskin, and purchased a bail video from Lexi Erickson, and finally had the courage to do something with it.
Sometimes it pays to be patient.
I set in sterling silver, the tube set amethyst in fine silver.
You can’t see it in the photo, but there is a 2mm faceted CZ flush set on the bail.
I had done tube sets in the past but they always ended up a little crooked.
Sometimes you should just splurge and take the class!
I have several other stones and am anxious now to set them rather than just look at them.
