Set yourself up for further metalsmithing success as you learn how to bezel set stones after making a ring or pendant. Choose a matte or high polished finish and walk away wearing or gifting your piece. This classic single-stone style builds on the basic skills introduced in Intro to Jewelry and Metalsmithing while applying the processes to a fun project.
This is a two session class, starting Saturday 4/7 and continuing the following day, Sunday 4/8. Please confirm with your schedule that you will be available to attend both sessions.
Students will learn how set a cabochon, or flat-bottomed stone, after soldering a ring or pendant frame together. Matte and high polish finishing techniques are also utilized.
Copper/brass/silver, small to medium cabochons (flat bottom stones), saw frame, files, flat sticks, drill press, hammers, burnisher, punches, polishing wheel, and soldering station.
Intro to Jewelry and Metalsmithing is recommended but not required.
