Step by step instructions

Start by setting the green agate faceted stone in a sterling silver wraptite link setting.

Place the faceted stone face down (flat side down) onto a firm surface such as a magazine placed on your work surface, and apply gentle pressure to 'click' the stone into place (providing the stone is a good fit).

Using a piece of wire to keep the loop open, squeeze to tighten the setting around the stone with the tips of round nose jewellery pliers.

Using  snipe or flat nose jewellery pliers open a 5mm sterling silver jump ring, attach the gingko leaf charm and one end of the wraptite setting.
