  • How to set a stone

  • How to adapt bezel settings

This class will introduce beginners to stone setting. It will also be a great opportunity for those more proficient to revisit and perfect their setting techniques.

We will concentrate on bezel settings and students can either focus on making the mounts from scratch or practice setting stones in ready assembled settings / mounts.

The class will also take a look at how to expand on the basic bezel setting design and explore how this can be adapted to make your settings decorative and unique.
