Learn to prong set your own gemstones in this one day weekend workshop. Starting with sterling silver 4 prong settings and faceted round gemstones, learn how to measure and account for depth and shape of the stone, cut a seat and create a bearing with files & burs. You will walk out with your own prong set hand made ring!
*This class focuses more on the actual setting of prongs, and will touch briefly on fabricating prongs. We recommend taking a private stone setting workshop with us if you would like to go over in depth how to make your own prong settings.
