Description

If you love gemstones then this stone setting workshop is for you. Learn to set a variety of sizes of cabochon stones during this 2-day stone setting course.  Students will be making rub-over bezel settings in sterling silver.

You will learn how to set stones to show their best features and create bezel and tube settings.

Students will learn how to make a ring shank and a setting for their gemstone ring.

The 2-day workshop is taught by Diane Appleby, a very experienced tutor and contemporary jeweller with over 30 years in the industry.

What students learn and make

A fabulous weekend course to learn two ways to set gemstones - tube setting and bezel setting. Diane Appleby is an amazing, supportive tutor; I learnt so much from her, and left with two beautiful gemstone rings. As always SquarePeg Studios is an awesome place to gather with like-minded people; it was a great group of fellow jewellery enthusiasts which made it even more enjoyable. Looking forward to attending future courses with Diane, and at SquarePeg.
