Alternative Settings

Dates: August 23-27, 2019
Instructor: Nanz Aalund

In this skill building workshop the techniques of 'Slot-in-Slot' construction, 'Bent finger prongs', and 'tabs' will be demonstrated and applied in making settings for alternative materials to be integrated into jewelry. You will use these techniques to make brooches, pendants and rings. The tools: circle cutter, hydraulic press, dividers, brass slide gauge, and two styles of hammers will be demonstrated. Flex shaft and bur use will be stressed for precision stone and object setting. While Nanz will provide practice materials, participants are encouraged to bring their own alternative materials for additional experimentation and technique practice. Beginning level jewelry skills of sawing, measuring, marking, and filing are a prerequisite. It will also be helpful if you already know the four basic rivet styles.
