Beyond the Basics 2: Stone Setting Workshop, second session
May 10 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm| $300
In this one-day intensive workshop participants will learn two pointed facetted gemstone setting techniques used in fine goldsmithing: Trillion bezel and V-prong Princess. We will work on actual pieces, not just demo surfaces, so it will be better training for the real thing. Your own gems are welcome: bring calibrated 4mm princess cut and 5mm trillion cut gems, though stones will be provided.
These are German Goldsmithing and self-taught techniques and tips to simplify these challenging styles of facetted gemstone setting, developed over 26 years of studio practice. By understanding and practicing the basic principles, you will be able to teach yourself further techniques and adapt them to your own designs.
