    Concept

    Develop interesting, fun compositions that explore a variety of settings to showcase alternative materials, found objects, cabochons, and faceted gemstones in rings or pendants. Using rivets and soldering techniques, learn how to fabricate your design with an assortment of alternative bezels, reverse tab, prong, and tube settings.

    Experience

    Daily demonstrations, handouts, and plenty of hands-on practice introduce you to a variety of setting techniques, as well as fabrication fundamentals, including soldering, sawing, filing, texturizing, and finishing methods using polishing compounds and patinas. In addition to cabochons and faceted stones, you may transform a special object from home or alternative material into a completed piece.

    Skill Level

    All levels welcome. Those with more experience are encouraged to push the boundaries of their projects.
