I am always hesitant to put something out there that basically says “This is the way to do something” – because there are always so many way to do things! Flush setting is a perfect example. It can seem almost impossible – and there is no end to different approaches to this technique. But Connie Fox and I have spent many hours trying techniques, testing ideas and practicing different methods to come up with what we consider to be a straightforward, easy to understand approach to flush setting stones. And we have put it together (with much help from Carol Marsella) in this 20 page Multimedia PDF – complete with text, photos, graphics and videos.
Following this multimedia tutorial, you be able to follow step by step the techniques needed to add this intriguing embellishment to your work. We also talk about tools needed, finishing techniques and show examples of flush setting in finished pieces.
You can see pictures below of flush set stones - the one on left is by Deb Jemmott - the one on right is by Connie Fox.
