How Can I Attach a Fairly Large Undrilled Stone to a Wire Bracelet?  - Discussion on Jewelry Making Journal

How can I attach a fairly large “undrilled stone” to a wire bracelet – maybe 3-5 strand 14g copper????

Would be making the bracelet also.

Thanks,

    Margie, you could try making a sheet metal “bezel,” larger than the stone, to go under the stone, then saw prongs up from it, to keep the stone in place. You could then drill holes in various places near the outer edge of the “bezel” in order to run the 14 ga wire through them, to attach the “bezel” to the wire of the bracelet. It’s easier to see this in a picture than to describe it in words!

  • Sharon Smith says:

    If you solder, you can make a wire frame from 16 gauge wire, mimicking the shape of the stone back, solder on prongs, then you can solder it to the bracelet wire, or wire it, if you prefer.

    Go to you tube. Type in search bar “how to make prongs for any undrilled Stone”. CSL designs and many others have you tube instructions on how to do this.
