Prerequisite: Metalsmithing 1

 

This workshop is a practical approach to prong setting and teaches you the basics by repeatedly setting round faceted stones.

 

You will be learning to prong set with 4mm round CZs. Using a specialized wheel to practice setting up to 17 stones, this technique will give you more flexibility in your jewelry designs and greatly enhance your stone setting skills. 

 

A Materials Kit (value $45) is included in your tuition, and includes the setting wheel and CZs for the workshop.
