1. I made a basic simple ring from silver and divided the top into 7 parts with a saw.

3. A close-up picture of the enlarged holes for stones.
4. I cut a cross on each squere. When setting the stones the corner points will be the parts that will keep the stones on their places.
5. After polishing the ring I clean it in the schools ultrasonic machine.
