Unique Setting

Today I wanted to share three images of work that take a unique approach to securing gems or other objects using gem setting techniques.

Regine Schwarzer using a simple tab setting to secure enameled plates.
Polly Wales casts pieces with the stones already in place. This only works on very heat resistant minerals.
Gilles Jonemann set a 5 carat diamond into small adjustable wrench using the tension setting technique.
