Build on your metal skills by exploring the process of bezel setting. This one day workshop will concentrate on making simple but beautiful bezels for pendants, earrings and rings in sterling silver. The workshop will cover step and fancy bezels.
There will be a setting demonstration covering the bezel rocker, using a hammer and punch as well as the foredoom hand piece for the setting.
Bring your own stones or choose from a selection of cabochon stones sold at the studio. Make sure the stones you select are either an oval or round cabochon (flat bottom) with a hardness of 7 or higher on the moh scale. Recommended stones include sapphires, tourmalines, amethysts, emeralds, rubies, topaz, and citrines.
