Multiple solder joints
Building a handmade Collet for a faceted stone or
Working with irregular shaped stones
What you need to bring to this class:
For this class you don't need to bring anything but yourself as everything is provided. However, if you want to bring some of your own stones you can and the tutor will advise as to whether these are suitable for use in this class. If not then we can always give advise on how they can be used in future.
