Ever wonder what to do with that beautiful, odd-shaped stone? Ever wanted to set a beautiful stone with a natural edge but didn’t know how? This is the class for you! And you’ll put your design skills to use in this unique class.

Students will learn: How to make prongs from wire and soldering them down.   You’ll learn how to integrate prongs and partial bezels to set a stone with a natural edge. You’ll also get to make rain drops and learn how to solder them on so they DON’T fall off. You’ll dome a disk and insert it into a hole you’ll drill in your cabochon and learn how to set a small 6mm cab as well as proper stamping techniques and various texturing techniques and finishing.

Project will be completed in class.
