Fast Track* – Wide Bezel Setting – Sterling Silver

2018/10/27

$240.00

Plus a Material/kit fee payable in cash to the instructor on the first day of class..  Check the full detailed description below for the correct amount to bring.  Materials will be available the day of class.  

(kit will range from $30-$50 depending on your choices)

Requires a Minimum of 3 participants.

Learn to make a ring with a bezel set cabochon, using a thicker bezel designed for harder stones like agates, quartz or garnets.  It will have a bolder and high-quality look.  If you have been bezel-setting cabochons using thin metal strips and a pusher or a burnisher, this will be a new skill for you as we will be using a steel chasing tool and a hammer to set your cabochon.

You will have the opportunity to make your own steel chasing tools in the Tool Making Workshop Friday evening before this class on Saturday and Sunday.  Please sign up for both!

*Fast Track offerings are those that are done over a compact period of time, rather than the regular schedule OR a lot of work performed per session. As many folks ask for this, we often offer both types. See the Complete Course Catalog for all options.

Dates & Times: Saturday & Sunday, October 27 & 28, 2018, 10am-5pm
Deadline to Register October 20th

Instructor: Marie-Claire Dole

Prerequisites:

All students must be at least 18 years old.
Basic skill level (some experience with metalsmithing prefered but not required.)

We Recommend you take the Tool Making Workshop – in it you will create the special tools you need for this class, while learning how to make your own chasing tools.

Available!
