Rocks, Rings & Pendants with Jeff Georgantes

March 16-18, 2018
Instructor: Jeff Georgantes

This class will explore the special qualities necessary to make large cabochon cocktail rings and pendants. How do larger rings fit on the hand? How are they engineered? How to make a large ring be comfortable? How to make a larger cabochon pendant balance? How to integrate a bail into your design? Using either stones that you supply or ones brought to the class by the instructor for purchase, students will learn about bezel and prong setting larger cabochons. Use of found objects will also be explored. Fabrication and soldering skills will be emphasized. Basic soldering experience helpful, but not required.
