    I did some setting years ago but never had any confidence that the stone was going to stay put. I'm the person who uses 12 inch screws to put up a small shelf.

    I love the 15 minute rings. They would be great with tiny seed pearls too. I wish I knew how to do stuff like flush setting

    There are companies which specialise in dealing with scrap. They even come and vacuum workshop floors. I remember seeing a video of their reclaim work a few years ago. Probably a better option
