Silver II: Gemstone Setting

FALL + WINTER 2016 COURSE CATALOG

This class is not currently on our schedule.  Our next upcoming Silver II class is Stackable Rings, check it out here..

Please join our mailing list for updates.

Learn to construct bezel settings for cabochon, faceted gemstones, and fancy shaped stones and how to use gallery wire for a lacy, delicate looking setting. Designed to be worn alone, or stacked together in multiple configurations, these rings are perfect fashion accessories. Dress up your fingers with your very own set of rings using round, square and twisted wire and adorn with gemstones in assorted colors, shapes, and sizes. Working with sterling silver, we use hammer and stamps, as well as high polish, and oxidized finishes to accentuate textures and highlight designs. Students may bring their own stones or purchase from the tutor’s collection. Materials are provided except for tools.
