Ammolite Awe Part 7 – Forging and Marquise Setting

So far creating this piece has comprised of many basic jewelry techniques: sawing, soldering, casting and now the one of the most traditional methods utilizing a hammer and anvil – forging. Although this is a minor detail and the forging is very limited it is still essential to acquire the taper form needed. I hand forge the platinum center section which creates a nice transition for holding the marquise diamond.
