About

Learn and practice how to cut a seat and secure a stone. You'll be using many basic jeweler tools (saw, files, pliers, dividers, calipers, punches, setting burrs, polishing wheels, vices, chasing hammer, and the flex shaft). You should have a working knowledge of the jewelers' saw, files, and flex shaft to sign up for this class.

Even if you don't use many traditional prong settings in your current designs, it's an excellent stepping stone. Learning how to use them can lead you to new understanding and possibilities.

She graduated from the University of North Texas where she studied with Harlan Butt and has continued her education through classes with masters, apprenticeships, trade school training, skill-building classes, and lots of bench time. She believes in learning by doing, listening to others’ experiences, and looking at how things are made around you. Her main focus right now is wax carving, fabrication, chasing, and repoussé. She works mostly with silver, gold, steel, rock, and semi-precious and precious stones to create pieces to be worn and enjoyed.
