Hi Greg

Thank you
It was your post David I saw
Play it by ear I guess
I actually made a jig for one I'm working on now
so far so good
but on another it won't work so piece by piece
by the way David
the jasper and rhodonite pieces were amazing
i am inspired by your work

24  Creative Stone Works / Moderator, Michael Hoover / Carving Tips, Tricks and Pics / opal in jade question on: January 14, 2016, 11:14:57 am
setting a stone directly into another is it done
would it be better to set in silver bezel 1st
Im thinking of setting an opal cab  in a piece of jade
my idea is grinding a small area size of opal and up to girdle deep
using 330 epoxy
i know its been done before
 any thoughts appreciated

Black jade frame and sonora chrysocolla
