How classy is this??? An updated classic style brings simplicity at it's easiest! I really like the look of prongs but getting them straight and even used to be a big problem. Not any more! The prongs are all the same length and evenly spaced due to my easy method! We use half of the side of the stone to mark our prong spacing to make them even and use the Omega bail top in the plain, crossed or braid mustache as shown in the above examples! It only uses 2 wires!
Yes, this is an oldie but a goodie style and I have made it easy and painless! I know you think you can't figure out how to make the prongs even on each side but I fixed that! I also know you can't get the prongs the right length every time but I fixed that too! This style uses two wires that hide beneath the stone and the prongs pop up just on the outside edge. Combine this with a great Omega style or double rabbit ear bail and it is a stunning combination of stylish simplicity that really makes your stone the star of the show!
This style is suitable for beginner and intermediate wire wrappers. We start with a simple formula that works for every stone regardless of the shape or size, and work our way to the top where we create double rabbit ear loops for the chain to fit, and then on to the many variations to decorate the top.
Each student gets to decide on what they would like to do with the top wires. There are suggestions but this is completely up to what you want to do! To add beads or not, to add a dangle or not, is completely your choice!
