1 Day Workshop

Soldering Gemstone Settings

Level II

Workshop Details

This 3 day intensive program will give you hands on experience in mastering techniques for working with Fine Silver metal clay. This is an intermediate class. The 2 day version requires prerequisite homework to be completed prior to the start of the workshop and is classed as advanced. Please review the recommended experience level details prior to reservation to ensure this workshop meets your requirements. 

 

Under Rodi's guidance you will create your own template and design, your own unique piece that incorporates hand -forming techniques. You will decorate both the front and the back of the pendant with hand formed and carved elements inspired by nature. After kiln firing the piece, you will also bezel set a stone by creating and soldering a bezel setting. You will also sand, polish and patina your piece based on your preferred finish.
