Workshop Overview

Whether you love an organic, rustic look, a refined, elegant look, or somewhere in between, a stone can be the perfect inspiration for your work. Learn or refresh your sawing and soldering skills while exploring ways to create prong settings for stone slices and cabochons. We will explore different prong styles that each give their own look to your settings. This set of skills can open your design options and take your creations to the next level.

Workshop is open to all levels, but it will be helpful to be comfortable working with a jeweler’s saw and butane torches.
