Class Description:

Up your bezel game with thicker bezels to give your jewelry designs a higher quality and perceived value. In this class we will be setting several different kinds of stones from standard cabochons to irregular pieces of sea glass or sea stones. We'll be using the Foredom hammer hand piece (and the various tips) setting the stones with a variety of techniques. You will also learn all about the Foredom Hammer Handpiece… learning how to use it, maintain it, and make the most of it.

Students must have solid intermediate skills of sawing, filing, and soldering.
