The Original Imaginative Captures

 Got a stone, enamel sample or little found treasure that’s been lying on your bench just waiting for a great way to be used in something? This information-packed workshop can help you develop new, elegant, more fully integrated setting (capturing) solutions and break down some of the rigid walls that exist between ideas, process and materials.

 We’ll liberate the problem solver within, examine the why’s along with the how’s and explore a variety of tricks, studio tips and some really bad jokes. Among the topics demonstrated and discussed: cold connecting, caging, back setting, the flex shaft and advanced soldering techniques.

 Participants must have basic jewelry skills and a familiarity with tools and studio equipment. Required skills include drilling with the flex shaft machine, sawing, filing, silver soldering and basic bezel setting. Students should have experience with: the rolling mill, torches, hammers, buffers, etc. Those who enroll must be able to solder unattended.
