Description

Note: This is part of the Intermediate Jewelry Series: Stone Setting. You can receive a discounted price for signing up for all 5 classes via this Link.

Students will learn how to make a setting out of a piece of thick-walled sterling silver tubing for a faceted gemstone. Tube settings are essentially small bezels made from tubing and are useful for adding colorful stones to your designs.

During this class we will review how to utilize the tube setting both as a bezel and a setting with prongs. This class builds upon techniques learned in both the Basic Bezel Class and the Pedestal Prong class.

At the end of this class series a 6th class will be offered as Open Studio Time to participating students involved in the series to offer time to finish class samples and ask questions.

Materials:

  • Allow $5 to $15 per class for materials. Material/kit fees are payable in cash to the instructor on the First day of class.
  • Instructor will have stones available for purchase and will provide the faceted gemstone with the materials kit as well as copper/brass/silver for purchase for each sample.  The cost of the material kit will be determined based upon your choice of materials.
  • Students are encouraged to bring in a selection of cabochons, gemstones, and sterling silver to class to set for each sample. The whole series will require 4 cabochons for classes: 3 round or oval cabochons and 1 odd shaped/square/rectangle cabochon, and two (2) 5mm faceted gemstones.
