Class Description

Learn the basics of bezel setting gemstones in this 4 session metal fabrication class. Students will work with silver sheet metal and wire to create a pair of post back earrings. Precise measuring, fitting, soldering, setting, and finishing will be taught. Cabochon gemstones will be the focus of this course.

Students must have prior soldering experience to take this course. It does not need to be extensive, but familiarity with torchwork and soldering principles is expected. Our Welcome to Jewelry classes offer this introduction.

Class size 4 – 6 students.
