B.Frames.CrystalizedTurtleBracelet

This is what a “prepped” bracelet frame looks like after construction, it is now ready to have a stamping design or what ever creation is to be soldered onto it. The turtle bracelet on the left corner; may have to be tossed into the “silver scrap bucket” for when it was very hot it fell into the pickle solution and crystallized the metal around the bezel. I’ve tried to take out the stone to no avail – I used, “hot stuff glue” (good stuff), and don’t want to damage the turq. stone. Have any ideas to salvage? Turtles are one of my most consuming projects, lots of detailed work involved making all the pieces and lots of tedious file work!
