You can get channel set findings and use them with resin clay and rhinestone chatons. But what if you were into wire and like the look? Well, you can certainly make wire wrapped channel set hoop earrings! The tutorial is by Lisa Yang over on her blog.
Lisa used brass wire which is wonderful for the gold color. However, just be aware that it is stiffer than copper and is thus harder to use in wire wrapping.
I agree with Lisa that you could probably adapt this design for rings. I would use smaller, round beads for comfort.
Lisa also has the same plastic mandrel set I have. Let me say, they are less fattening to use as far as the triangular shape is concerned! Fattening? Yup. See this past post.
