NEW: Prong Setting a Cabochon by appointment
Prong Setting For A Cabochon
$65.00 plus KIT ($15 and up)
Requires two students or a private class @ 65 per hour (two hour minimum)
*You can bring your own piece to set or we will have Cabochons you may purchase.
In this class you will learn how to set a Cabochon, mineral, coin, enamel piece or button with Sterling Silver wire creating a four or six prong setting and bail. This is an inexpensive way to set all of your flat coins or minerals inexpensively. This class is a beginner level class but we recommend you have some soldering with a torch practice (Classes: Stackable Rings or Forged Hoop Earrings) It is challenging and very rewarding. Learning this skill will also give you an understanding of how to plan a four or six prong basket setting for faceted stones.
** This class is great paired with the Enameling class. You can bring in a finished projects from the Enameling and set it into a pendant.
