Learn how to stone-set in this comprehensive beginner-intermediate level course.
Stone setting is a wonderful technique for jewellers to learn that enables you to add colourful semi-precious or even precious gemstones to your metalwork.
Our experienced tutor Rebecca Steiner, will guide you through how to make three key settings from start to finish:
1. Set a Cabochon Stone: by creating the bezel to fit the stone, soldering it on to a piece, creating a design, setting the stone and finishing the piece.
2. A Tube Set Stone: set a faceted gemstone into a piece of silver tube. This project is perfect for rings and pendants as well as unique designs of your own.
3. A Flush or Gypsy Setting: set a faceted gemstone straight into the silver to create a neat, flat setting. A beautiful technique for showing off the stone, for pendants, earrings, bangles and rings alike.
All of these techniques take time and practice and in this in-depth video course we have six lessons to guide you through the process which you can re-watch as many times as you like to perfect the skills and master the techniques
If you love gemstones or want to add a new dimension to your work this is the perfect course to take your collections and skills to the next level.
