Learn to set a faceted stone into a classic ladies ring. Several design possibilities will be shown and explained. Learn how to properly size this ring, for a perfect fit about every time! I will also share my formulas for future settings that work with about any stone. Each student will make two settings, almost guaranteeing that they will wear one ring out of class!
Class discussions will include: choosing the right stone for the right ring style and finger size; how to use ring sizers and mandrels that do not match; pricing your work for profit and more.
The workshop fee of $153.00 includes teacher fee, all necessary silver wire for 2 rings, choice of one faceted stone, and written follow-up instructions.
Skill Level: Advanced (Must have experience making wraps with half-hard square wire)
