  • This intensive five-day workshop includes stone setting tips and techniques you won't learn anywhere else. Packed with real-world examples and projects, plenty of practice settings, at a professionally stocked jewelers bench with high-end tools, you will learn everything from how to successfully flush set, prong set, channel set, bezel set, as well as how to work with gravers. In addition, an introduction to bead setting techniques covers many contemporary stone setting designs and techniques. This class places special emphasis on bur control, NSK Emax techniques, graver sharpening, and use so students leave with a comprehensive understanding and foundation for effective stone setting. 

    Students practice setting both simulated diamonds and fragile colored stones in many setting styles. (For tuition and class dates, click on tabs to the right of description)
