Stonesetting

Instructor: Paul Nielsen
Date: July 14-18, 2017

Gemstones have captured the imagination and admiration of generations of people from kings and queens to young couples committing to a loving life together. In this workshop, participants will learn proper techniques, terminology and “tricks of the trade” in the most popular styles of setting gemstones including prongs, bezels, burnishing(flush setting), channel setting and pave’. Choosing the appropriate setting for particular gems will be discussed in detail. Settings will be done using cubic zirconia, but participants are encouraged to bring any of their own gemstones to discuss various and appropriate setting options. This class is suitable for artisans with basic jewelry knowledge and seasoned professionals looking to build upon their stone setting skills. Intermediate to Advanced
