You will be shown the basic technique of forming the stone setting in flat metal, setting stones, trouble shooting, and finishing the setting. If time permits, setting into irregular surfaces can be covered.

Required equipment: strong magnifying glasses or head-sets or lenses on a stand.
Recommended equipment: your own flexishaft dremel or similar.

Strong magnifying lenses are a must because you will be working in very tiny scale – if you already wear glasses, we suggest wearing jeweller’s magnifying head-sets or two pairs of glasses (yes – it works!)

Your own dremel is useful, because you need to learn how to use your own flexishaft tool to drill and form the settings. Please let us know if you plan to bring one.

This course is a technique course only – not one where you come away with a “finished” item. Suitable for students with some experience.
