Inlay Jasper Watch

Describe your how you went about making your project. How did you use your Dremel accessory to complete the job? How did you feel once completing the project?

I rough cut the jasper stones with a trim saw.  Using my Cordless Dremel with a diamond grinding bit, I shaped the stones to fit inside the sterling silver watch tips.  NOTE:  the stones are dipped into a bowl of water, to wet the stones.  This is done during the cutting, grinding and sanding stage.    Once the stones are shaped, they are glued into the tips with epoxy glue.  At this point, only the edges were ground down.  The stones are protruded above the silver setting.  Using the Cordless Dremel with a diamond grinding bit, the top is ground down flush with the setting.  Then, a wet-dry sanding disk was added to a Dremel mandrel and sanded down, smooth, going from the coarsest to finest grits.  Next, a buff was attached to the mandrel and diamond grit was applied to the buff.  The stones were polished with the with a the diamond grits.  Once the stone work was done, another buff was attached to the mandrel and silver polished added to the buff to polish the silver.
