Bezel Settingfitzgerald jewelry school
Build on your metal skills by exploring the process of bezel setting. This one day workshop will concentrate on making simple but beautiful bezels for pendants, earrings and rings in sterling silver. The workshop will cover step and fancy bezels. There will be a setting demonstration covering the bezel rocker, using a hammer and punch as well as the foredoom hand piece for the setting. Bring your own stones or choose from a selection of cabochon and faceted stones sold by the studio.
