I start out by marking where all the diamonds will go. Then I drill 1mm pilot holes that prepare the location for each diamond setting. The next step is to carefully cut a seat for each diamond with a stone setting bur. It is important that the bur is exactly the right size, if it is too small the diamond will not fit in the setting and if it is too large it will not stay in the setting. The most challenging step is the burnishing of the setting. In this process I actually push a little metal over the diamond all the way around the stone, not enough metal and the diamond will not stay in and too much metal and too much of the diamond is covered
