This workshop explores unusual ways to set found objects, enamels,  glass, pebbles, stones and pearls in variety of fabricated settings. Build a basket style prong, pearl cup for a baroque pearls or a tab setting for a large cabachon or a found object. The goal of the class is to create a finished mounting and incorporate it into a jewelry design. This is a great class for those who have some experience in soldering and fabrication but need to refine their skills, learn shortcuts in fabrication or learn new approaches for designing with stones. Students should bring favorite unset objects to class and will have the time to complete a project.
