This class will focus on prong setting and finishing techniques. We'll complete at least ten prong settings in class. After completing this class you will understand what makes a good prong setting and have the confidence to include prong setting into your own work. This is a technique specific course, we will not be setting any jewelry.
Please do not bring unfinished projects. Due to the time constraints on the class we will not have time to address project pieces. But, as always, finished work for show and tell is welcome.
Cost: $145 BoMA members, $195 for non-members (difference for non-member price will be collected at workshop)
Materials fee: $50
About the Instructor
Jamie Mclandsborough has been working in the jewelry field for 20 years, since he was first introduced to soldering by a wonderful high school art teacher. Jamie has apprenticed, taken courses through GIA, tested with the Jewelers of America and studied extensively but still believes there is no better way to learn than a little bit of knowledge and a whole lot of experimentation. Jamie currently works as a bench jeweler at Gusterman’s Silversmiths in Downtown Denver, served on the Board of CoMA, and takes classes anywhere he can, most recently right here in the BoMA studio.
