Virtual Workshop: Back-Setting For Found Objects and Cabochons with Jill Baker Gower

Virtual Workshop: Back-Setting For Found Objects and Cabochons with Jill Baker Gower

January 21 & 28, 2022 3:00-5:00pm ET
Tuition: $125.00

In this workshop students will learn to design and fabricate a back-setting for a cabochon or found object. Setting cabochon stones or objects from the back allows for creation of interesting decorative frames, pierced elements over the stone or object, a heavy bezel look from the front, and/or a double-sided feature. This type of setting is sometimes used to set fragile stones, enamels, or 2D artwork/photographs under acrylic sheet, so that no pushing, hitting, or setting happens from the front. Alternatively, tabs will be used to set the object or stone from the back.
