    Hi Dennis this is them. I managed to set them with a hammer. I tried to keep the brass lip minimal so there wasn't too much to set like you advised. I didn't need the glue in the end :)

    Brass bezel strip

    Am I crazy to be thinking of setting two turquoise stones with 0.3mm thick brass bezel strip. Can it be done or should I reconsider?

    As far as I know you can't fully set a bullet cabochon because the curvature is too high. You need to use glue. Ps great ring.
