Stone Setting Basics

In this 6 week course, students will learn a variety of basic stone setting techniques including bezel setting, tab setting, prong setting, flush setting, and bead setting. Each week we will introduce a new setting skill. Over the 6 weeks students will be asked to design jewelry that houses any of the stone setting techniques that they wish. We will work in sterling silver so that the items students create can be worn daily if they would like. We will explore the more common formats of jewelry such as rings, earrings and pendants.
