GOLD RING FABRICATION + STONE SETTING
Gold has always held a fascination for its beauty throughout history.
In this 2 day workshop students will learn about the ductility of the metal, its properties and the different methods of working the material to produce a beautiful piece of handmade gold jewelry.
Students will learn how to forge a band, make a bezel, set the stone, and complete the ring in a fine high polish finish. Students will have the choice of working in Yellow, Rose, Green, & White Gold*.
*You will need to bring in at least 3 inches of 3mm round wire in your choice of gold to have enough material to make a band and bezel for your ring.
