Instructor: Julie Monroe. Tuition: $220 + materials kit of $25 payable in class (includes bezel wire, silver wire and silver sheet, bail and/or ring shank material). Feel free to bring a cabochon of your own to set or we'll have beautiful ones at various price points available to purchase in class.
This class gives you a comprehensive overview of bezel setting. We begin with the fundamentals of designing the bezel including measuring the bezel wire and backplate. You will then learn how to construct the bezel and backplate, solder the bezel closed, file each to fit perfectly and solder into place. You will end the day with the satisfaction of achieving the keystone skill of bezel making! On day two we’ll delve into adding adornments including twisted wire and decorative balls with lots of soldering. Once the design is done you’ll learn how to properly set and secure your stone and finish your piece. By the end of the two day intensive you’ll be a bezel making ROCK STAR! Note, beginner fundamentals such as sawing, filing, finishing and soldering are not taught in this fast paced class. Confidence with these techniques is necessary.
