This is an introduction using my hand- drawn diagrams. It will be easier for the student to fully understand all the tools that are required. Some setting projects need certain high-precision files or Gravers.
It is my duty to explain which one to use, when and where. At each setting project I show, I will utilize the picture or diagrams for each setting. Therefore no guessing is needed.
Many of my students think that this is the better way to show a gem-setting 'demonstration'. "Words & text is fine, but diagrams with a video is best!"
