Beyond the Basics: Fine Stone-Setting Workshop

November 10, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

| $250

Three basic diamond and facetted gemstone setting techniques used in fine goldsmithing

1. Tube Setting
2. Flush Setting
3. Tapered Bezel Setting (fabricated bezel)
Learn some German Goldsmithing and self taught techniques and tips to simplify some challenging styles of diamond and fine gemstone setting, developed over 26 years of studio practice.  By understanding and practicing the basic principals, you will be able to teach yourself further techniques and adapt them to your own work.
Much of the practice will be done on actual pieces, not just flat demo surfaces, so it will be better training for the real thing. Need a diamond accent on your pendant? Your own pieces are welcome for flush and tube setting.
Bring your magnifiers and loupes, these diamonds are tiny!
