How I developed my process for making stone rings
Making a semi-precious stone ring is a challenge, but as my lapidary skills improved, I wanted to start making stone jewelry. As with any craft, hobby, or stone jewelry business, finding the right tools for the job was crucial, and not so easy in the niche of semi-precious stone rings.

After exploring lots of potential options, I found tools that a tile layer might use to be the closest to what I needed. If you think about it, how do you cut stone? With the hardest stone – diamond. I found a diamond coated hole saw drill bit that cuts holes in stone!

There were lots of hurdles to overcome as I developed my process for making semi-precious stone rings. For example, how do I keep the stone and drill bit cool while cutting? A cake pan full of water solved that problem. How do I hold everything in place so that the cut is clean? Some specialty clamps solved that problem. Why does cutting a stone take so long? Not all hole saw diamond drill bits are created equal, and once I found the right one, cutting time was significantly reduced. How do I get a hole saw drill bit that will cut ring sizes? This is probably the most significant challenge, since hole saw drill bits only come in so many sizes, but I’ve managed to get enough to cover some of the average ring sizes.
Making stone jewelry, and specifically making semi-precious stone rings brought many challenges, but I’ve learned so much in the process, and I’ve combined many of my stone rings with opal inlay because, hey, one I learned how to cut stone, the possibilities are endless!

So many slabs…so little time!
