Inspirations: Unusual stone setting

Tutor Anna Campbell has been looking at some more unusual stone setting for design inspiration

I am pretty addicted to pinterest and love that we have so much access to inspiration as jewellers there. I have recently been drawn to unusual stone settings and I find it useful to consider how the jeweller has done it as it gives me a jumping off point for ideas. Here are a few innovative designs that I love. How would you go about making these settings?
