Overview - One Day Workshop:  The day is spent learning how to cut our metal to size so that it will wrap into a tapered bezel that will later allow students to set a faceted stone without having to create an inside bezel.  Students will be able to pick out a round faceted stone of their choosing and then how to properly set it in fine silver.

 

Objectives: This one day workshop will give students the knowledge to create and set a faceted stone in a tapered bezel. We will be turning this stunning setting into a ring that will show off this sleek setting that gives a clean and airy look.

Tools and Material:

  • Fine Silver sheet- 24ga
  • sterling silver sheet or wire for the band.
  • Round Faceted stone

(all of the materials can be purchased during the workshop as students see the demo and decide what they would like to use for their designs.)

Instructor will bring all other tools needed for the class.

 

Activities: In this one day workshop you will:

1. Learn how to fabricate a tapered bezel!

2. Solder a tapered Bezel onto a ring shank of your design.

3. Set a faceted stone in a tapered bezel.
