Malachite setting in stainless steel.
Just wanted to see if I could...
It's done the same way I set glass in stainless settings.
Arc welded and IMMEDIATELY dropped in a bucket of water.
In this case from the back.
The heat never reaches the stone or glass.
I call this Low Tech High Art.
I'll fit the bezel a bit better next time.
Dipping polished malachite in water is not the best thing for the stone(it dulls the shine),but it was an experiment anyway...
