This 4 hour class will teach you how to highlight your favorite stone by placing it front and center in a handmade bezel set ring or pendant. With the combination of Dave’s 40 years being a jeweler and Mandi’s mixed metal jewelry background you will learn basic artistic practices for silversmithing such as how to cut, solder, shape a sterling silver bezel and securely attach a handmade back-plate to your bezel, followed by filing and finishing your piece. Mastering these simple techniques is the beginning of designing high quality artist jewelry and you take home a ring or pendant that showcases your new skills!
