Stone Setting | Hammer Setting
with Elia Rizzo
Saturday 16th – Monday 18th November | 10.00-16.00 | £200
This unique, three day course covers the basics of hammer stone-setting. During the course you will produce a beautiful double bezel setting for a cabochon stone within a ring.
The course covers how to make silver steel punches and how to forge them and harden them; enabling you to make your own tools, and jewellery containing iron/steel. The course will also cover the final stages of production of polishing, using the proper tools.
The cost includes all materials required but you can use your own instead if you prefer.
The course is suitable for individuals with some jewellery making experience, whether they have attempted stone setting before, or not.
