Time: 6:00 to 9:00pm
Instructor: Jennifer Wolfe / Kat Sumpton
Prong settings are such a beautiful way to set gemstones and cabochons, they are safe, secure and allow you to showcase the beauty of the gem you are setting. This workshop will help you strategize how to achieve the perfect prongs for your gems, whether creating a ring or a pendant and how to navigate different shaped gemstones.
During this 4 week workshop instructors will focus on introducing students to simple prong setting for cabochons, rose cut or oddly shaped stones. The instructor will show students how to fabricate a prong setting using wire and join the prong setting to a ring or pendant. Instructors will also show you how to make easy setting tools for your own use.
