- Prong Setting
Learn how to prong set faceted gemstones! By the end of this 2-day course, you will be able to fabricate a 4-prong basket setting and a v-shape setting.
You will learn how to measure and account for the depth and shape of the stone, cut a seat and create a bearing with files & burs. You will also learn how to select proper bur size, and how to shape prong tips and make sure the stone is secure. In addition, we will cover prong setting for unusually shaped stones.
- Flush Setting
Dating back to ancient times, this stone setting method has seen a resurgence in popularity in contemporary jewelry design. Prior silversmithing experience is highly recommended for this course. While stone and ring samples are provided, you will need to bring your own tools.
This is a highly-versatile technique which will open up a world of design options for you, while honing the skills and dexterity that you can apply to any jewelry practice.
You will learn how to set stones flush with the surface of their metal by carefully drilling, seating and then burnishing stones in place. In addition, you will explore hand-making and customizing tools, while sharing tips and trade secrets of the “old timers” in the industry and insider resources used by expert setters.
- Tube Setting
This alternative stone setting technique uses tubing to create a bezel setting for smaller stones. In this course, you will cover the basics of measuring and working with gemstones, including choosing the correct tubing, cutting a seat, and setting a stone.
You will have the opportunity to fabricate earrings, rings, or pendants. On completion of the course, you will walk away with a beautifully finished tube set piece.
