Bezel setting videos

There's a whole series of videos on bezel setting at the Art Jewelry magazine website. I'm sure there were just three the other day and now there are eight! Making a Bezel comes in five parts: Measuring, Soldering, Shaping, Adjusting Size and Soldering to a Backplate. Setting a Cabochon in a Bezel has three parts: Ajusting Bezel Height, Using a Bezel Pusher and Using a Burnisher.

I've only viewed the one on using a bezel pusher so far, but found it very clear. You need to register (free) to view the videos.

These are well worth a look. The links are listed under the Metalsmithing heading on this page.
