|Place the cabochon of your choice into a bezel that will accommodate it.
Note: Verify the cabochon is calibrated or a larger setting may be required: sizes on non-calibrated cabochons vary slightly.
|Looking at the bezel as if it's a clock, place the bezel pusher against the bezel at the 3 o'clock position. Push on the tool, gently but firmly pressing the edge of the bezel against the cabochon. Repeat by pressing against the bezel at opposing positions: 9 o'clock; 6 o'clock; and then 12 o'clock.
Note: By pressing against the bezel in opposing positions you create equal pressure against the cabochon, keeping it centered as well as moving the metal equally as you work your way around the setting.
|To smooth out any imperfections and to shine up the bezel, press the belly of the burnisher along the side of the bezel until you are pleased with the finish.|
