The frame is made from 0,8 square silver wire and I used the same net technique from the previous beach glass set to secure the stone. I used fine silver wire instead of sterling for the net and I know it's not as resistant or as hard as sterling silver, but it worked pretty well and it doesn't unravel as easily as I had feared.
The ring frame has the added advantage of leaving the back of the stone completely uncovered, allowing the light to shine when you look through the stone.
You can see the other rings and more pictures on Flickr or my store
