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
Do you love stones? Do you wish you could add them to your jewelry but you don’t know how to set them? Is soldering something you either don’t know how to do or don’t have the set-up for?
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.
