Do you have an unusual cabochon or stone that you would like to use in a piece of jewelry? Then this is the class for you! In this exciting workshop students will have the opportunity to custom build a pendant with individualized direction and help from Darlene, learn how to build partial bezels, fit bezels to stones with uneven tables, and apply prongs for additional support in setting for your larger, perhaps unusually shaped stone. Students will have the opportunity to learn from each students design as Darlene will show the class one by one what the setting options are for each person. Each student will be doing an individual setting and therefore there are many ways to accomplish these types of setting challenges.
Students will need to bring in 3-5 cabochons that they wish to use, and Darlene will help choose the best one for the most creative design. Darlene will then assist each student with the design, creation, finishing and setting the stone. Due to the individual help needed, this class is limited to 6 students.
