Class, Has Prerequisite

Wrap bezels, solder, fabricate a ring, and set a round or oval cabochon stone - a great class if you want to learn how to add colorful stones to your work and increase your fabricating skills.

This is the first in the stone setting series of classes. It's also a prerequisite for some of the stone-setting classes that follow, because it introduces you to basic stone setting concepts and soldering techniques that will be built upon throughout the series.


  • A $30 materials fee, included in the cost of the class, covers all the stones, silver, copper, etc., needed for the class.
  • Some extra materials may be available for purchase (bring check or cash - the studio doesn't make change).


Students should bring:

  • A mask
  • An apron
  • Any of your own tools you want to use during class
