A very talented friend of mine wrote a tutorial recently that solves a lot of issues.
The best part is, it keeps larger faceted stones from flip flopping when worn.
Most of the wire wrapping techniques do nothing to keep this from happening.
The next important step is, it got me past my fear of creating prongs.
The tutorial is available on Etsy http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=39481001
I highly recommend it!
