Silversmithing: Prongs #3
          ~ Lisa Kirkeby
This is the thirdd class of three on prongs. In the first class we did
a fairly simple prong setting and in the second class we built on that
by adding another layer so we could set a faceted stone. This class
takes all of that a step further and adds more design elements to
your piece.
