Bezel Setting

Contact us for dates.

Go beyond “bezel wire” and learn the art of constructing bezel settings for cabochon gems, or a stepped bezel for faceted gemstones and adorn a ring in this 2-day intensive workshop. Working with sterling silver, learn to fabricate bezels with the right height and thickness for your gem, explore gallery wire for decorative framing, as well as high polish and oxidized finishes to accentuate textures and highlight designs. The Studio will provide sterling silver to fabricate in. Students may bring their own gemstones to the workshop (speak with us about required specs first ) – or choose to purchase from a variety of gems from the tutor’s collection. Tool list sent out upon registration includes basic hand tools for jewelry fabrication.
