You’ve been asking about when I’ll be teaching again, and this December your wish is my command.
Now that I’m feeling more energy I am coming back to the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen to teach my Integrated Prong Setting workshop. It’s perfect timing to learn a new technique while creating a gift for a special loved one (or yourself!)
December 2nd from 11am – 3pm $108.00 for PGC members and $120.00 for non-members
In this class, you’ll learn how to set a cabochon stone using tools you already have – just a saw frame, drill, and bench pin. No torch necessary! You’ll saw and file your way to a beautiful pendant you can complete during class time. Learn a new technique and get a fabulous piece of jewelry you can wear home.
Students will learn how to create a prong setting integrated into a sheet of metal. Each participant will create a pendant out of brass, texture the metal, and pierce prongs to set a cabochon stone without needing to solder. You will leave with a completed project.
Skill level: Beginning jewelry and metalsmithing skills are helpful, but not required.
