Description

If you love gemstones then this stone setting workshop is for you. Learn to set a variety of sizes of cabochon stones during this 2-day stone setting course.  Students will be making rub-over bezel settings in sterling silver.

You will learn how to set stones to show their best features and create bezel and tube settings.

Students make two rings in silver set with a semi-precious cabochon gemstone which we will supply. Measuring and constructing secure settings to safely house gemstones is the primary focus of this workshop.

The Make Your own Gemstone Ring is suitable for students with Intermediate experience. To participate, at least the equivalent of our Beginner's course should have been completed in order to ensure sufficient prior knowledge of fabrication processes to comfortably complete this workshop. Students will learn how to make a ring shank and a setting for their gemstone ring.

The 2-day workshop is taught by Diane Appleby, a very experienced tutor and contemporary jeweller with over 30 years in the industry.

What students learn and make

  • Basic bezel settings
  • Students will be making rub-over bezel settings in sterling silver. Students make a ring incorporating a semi-precious cabochon gemstone, which we will supply.
