Beyond the Bezel: Stone Setting Three Ways
Go beyond the bezel and learn to set any stone in many ways! Flush set stones are versatile and can be set into metal sheet or casting pieces for subtle or bold effects. The classic prong setting can hold any type of stone or object and is built from wirework using precise soldering. Tab setting is perfect for cold connected pieces or a stone that is too high for a bezel setting. This fast-paced workshop will have you bringing home several finished pieces! Bring silver and stones from your personal collection. The instructor will also bring stones for purchase and some silver will be available for purchase. Previous metalsmithing soldering experience required.
