In this two day workshop students will explore the art of properly measuring, soldering and setting a hand- made basket mount for a faceted stone. Students may make any type of jewelry (i.e. earrings, ring, pendant) within the duration of this workshop-with the focus that at least one project will be completed to a high finish. The project guidelines may also include accents of gallery wire incorporated into the main wire work for the stone.
Students are encouraged to bring in a range of larger sized faceted stones. These can be round, oval, square, triangular- any shape. The goal is to work in larger style stones (especially if this is your first time creating something like this). Anything 8mm and over is best to learn on, and odd shapes are encouraged!
