Hello I’m Larry Knox. I spend part of my time faceting gemstones and then I design and make custom settings for them. I want to show and tell you about the ring I made with this round brilliant green gemstone that I faceted.

This is silver casting grain that will be used in the lost wax method of casting. The wax will be destroyed in the process of make in the ring so the setting is truly one-of-a-kind.
|Silver grains will become rings.|
|There is still work to be done!|
Here is a video with some of the steps taken to make this ring:
