This relatively simple piece illustrates how much goes into something simple. Chaya had to cut, fit and fuse her bezel, solder it down to a backsheet, then cut ,file and sand. She had to cut, file , bend, saw, and solder her shank closed. She then had to size and true up her shank and prepare a seat for soldering. She then had to align everything perfectly, solder together, clean up any mishaps and make two (hopefully) identical granules. Then came positioning them equally, soldering them down and setting the stone to the stone’s advantage. When you think through all the steps even for something “simple”, it’s a miracle we ever get any jewelry made at all. So congratulations to Chaya for not losing heart along the way.
