Spend 5 weeks developing your stone setting skills! In this intensive class you will learn a range of different stone settings which will really take your work in silver jewellery to the next level.
The main stone settings covered in this class include:
- A simple rub over setting, which involves creating a bezel and encasing a cabochon-shaped stone. This is a key technique for setting stones and is very useful to add to your repertoire of skills as it allows you to set a range of natural stones in a range of sizes.
- A tube setting, a simple yet effective technique for neatly setting usually small stones into silver tube. A great contrast to the rub over setting and adds a new dimension to your jewellery.
- Flush setting or gypsy setting, a neat way of setting your stones into the metal, which still allows a flat finish to the piece so that your stone is well protected and again this adds a new design element to your pieces.
- A basic claw setting (if there is time)
And much more
During the course the tutor will also be talking about the qualities of different popular stones and considerations when setting them.
This class is very intensive so come prepared but it will really move your work on leaps and bounds and promises not to disappoint. All the materials including stones and silver will be provided.
