Using cabochons or rose-cut stones: Cabochons are gemstones that are shaped and polished to be made into jewellery. They have a flat bottom which can be easily glued onto any ornament.
Select harder stones that rate higher on the Mohs hardness scale: This is just a precautionary step for beginners while they are still learning their craft. Harder stones just won’t chip and break under novice mistakes.
Choose gemstones that contrast well with the material of the jewellery: It’s important for the aesthetics of your piece that the stone you select blends well with the rest of the ornament. The alloy you use, the beadwork, everything has to be in-sync with the gemstone you pick. It is best to design your piece around the gemstone you select, making it the centrepiece.
Avoiding dyed and coated gemstones: The many processes of making jewellery involve using various cleaning chemicals, glues, solvents, etc. If you’re using a dyed or coated gemstone, it will suffer the consequences of these liquids.
Choosing a reasonably priced gemstone: When you’re just starting, it is important to work with real stone, so that you have a measure of what it’s like to work with actual stones, but also make sure to pick one that isn’t phenomenally expensive.
