GYPSY SETTINGfitzgerald jewelry school
In this one day workshop you will learn how to drill, open up and prepare metal to set stones flush into the piece. Students will practice setting on provided plates of metal in different size stones and once confident proceed to set stones on their own pieces with the guidance of the teacher. Please bring in completed pieces to gypsy set stones in otherwise you can keep practicing on plates; we do offer 3 hours of bench time on us which you can use to come in and make something beforehand. CZ's will be available in house or you may bring your own faceted stones - we recommend hard stones such as sapphires and diamonds.
