Prong Settings are a small brass setting that is plated in copper, gold or silver. I like to think of Prong Settings as little bezels that allow me to create sweet little accents. Although, we do offer Prong Chatons that fit within the Prong Settings, they aren’t just for adding bling.  Here are a couple ways that you could use these little US Made cuties!


1.  Wire Wrap a Prong Setting Bracelet Bangle

In these rings, I used a bit of Crystal Clay in the base of the Prong Setting Ring and then poured Nunn Design 2-Part Resin over the top to create this look. The trick is to bend back the prong settings prior to pouring the resin and then once the resin is cured, bend the prongs back around the cured resin.
