A tiny wee peridot

I bought some tiny wee peridot cabochons last year and have only just got round to making a simple bezel set ring with one of them. They are 6mm x 4mm, such a pretty colour, but very fiddly to work with. 

The bezel setting is minute, which makes it difficult to grip when sanding or filing it. I do all this by hand, no tools, just a file and sandpaper, and my fingers were so sore afterwards.

Anyway here is the finished ring....



  1. I have enjoyed reading your post. It is well written. It looks like you spend a large amount of time and effort on your blog. I appreciate your effort. Please check out my site.

  2. That ring's gorgeous! I love peridots. what gauge sheet did you use for the bezel?
