Prerequisite: Intermediate/Advance level - You must have basic soldering and fabrication experience to take this class.
The micro torch is a handy tool that is essential for small scale soldering. In this workshop you will learn how to use a micro torch to solder a small prong onto a dainty ring, set the stone, polish and clean.
We will provide faceted stones but if you would like to pick your own stone, make sure you get a 3mm round faceted stone with a good hardness such as a sapphire (they are available in assorted colors).
We will provide Sterling Silver but if you would like to work in Gold you will need to bring in 3" of 1.25mm soft round wire along with a size 10Pt Prong Basket Setting (for a 3mm faceted stone).
Tools are provided.
