Stone Setting in Wax

Stone Setting in Wax

4 day workshop | February 23-26

This exciting four-day workshop will cover a variety of setting options while focusing on different types of wax to create beautiful stone settings for any design. This is a great way to learn how to set all types of stones and the possibilities of both soft and hard carving waxes. Students will have the opportunity to create samples or actual charms, rings and pendants with demonstrations that include bezels in both hard wax and soft wax, prong and bezel setting using the wax lathe, prong settings in soft wax, pavè in wax, irregular stone settings and channel setting. We will spend the first three days creating setting samples in wax and then cast and set the stones in metal on the final day.

Class will be held in the jewelry studio.

There will be a one hour break for lunch.
