Chris, I absolutely HATE stepped bezel wire. And I LOVE using step
bezel on cabochons. One man's meat is another man's poison.
I find step bezel convenient because you have only one solder joint
and you don't need a silver backing on the stone, so that you save
on metal. Also step bezel comes with the step at different depths,
so you can get the size to fit your particular stone. For me it's
the quickest, neatest, most economical way of setting a cab.
