Traditional & Alternative Settings

Design and fabricate an embellished frame setting for an object (enamel, stone, found object) which will become the focal point of a ring or a pendant of your choice. There will be opportunities to adorn the main setting as well as the ring band or bail with smaller traditional faceted stone settings. The goal is to create a fully three dimensional piece of jewelry in which all surfaces are treated decoratively to enhance and unify the overall design. A variety of stone setting methods will be demonstrated, including prongs, decorative tabs, tube settings, and many variations.
