Prerequisite:  Intermediate PMC

 

Learn to create decorative rings using PMC—no casting required! PMC allows you to stretch your design ideas without having to using more complicated techniques such as wax carving or casting.

 

In this workshop, students will further increase their PMC skills by creating at least 2 rings—one of which will be a hollow-form ring—and adding flush-set CZ stone accents. Students that have experience with bezel-setting stones may opt to learn how set small cabochons and bezels within their PMC rings in addition to using CZs. Torch skills and knowing how to use a jeweler's saw are required to accomplish your creations.
