Details

This class meets for four consecutive Thursday evenings in October: 4, 11, 18, & 25.

In this class we'll practice primary techniques to complete two to three stacking rings, set with stones. We'll practice measuring, cutting, forming, soldering rings and bezels, setting cabochon design, textures and finishing. This is an excellent class if you have never taken a jewelry course or would like to brush up on your jewelry skills.
