How Inlay Jewelry Is Made
The art of making inlay jewelry is by creating a design in metal with channels or voids that will hold the gemstones inlayed into them. Each stone is carefully cut and fit into different patterns. The more intricate the design, the more time is involved in each inlay creation. The art of inlay jewelry is becoming more appreciated and lends itself to a wide variety of designs.
