Has anyone else incorporated this technique into their work?

I read that review. It looks like a great book. I'm going to add a copy to my cart when I get Creative Stone Setting.

What I like most about her work is how meticulous she is about the form, polish and presentation.

I have for a long time. But I only list the simple folds here. It's a nice technique

This looks amazing, thank you for sharing this article. I also admire Charles Lewton-Brain's enamelled work.
