#6, Bead-Burnishing, Final Cuts!

Description

In this final video, you will see the stones being finally set. I will be using a Hart-shaped bur..a.k.a. 156C to under-cut each mini-post/claw. This is to make sure each stone is set level & equally at the same depth.
Any ‘touch-ups’ in cutting on the metal surfaces is done at this time.
