P246 - Bezel Set Stone in PMC


$ 150  

 

This class is not a class for the beginner in metal clay and is strongly recommended that you have a good understanding of how to work with the clay.

The art of bezel setting stones has been around for a long time. Transferring that skill to combine with metal clay is an exciting addition to the jewelry world, but a whole new skill set that needs to be learned.
Students will learn how to calculate proper size for the setting, how to fit a bezel, how to properly fire and connect the settings and set the stone.

Kit Fee: $35 payable to instructor at beginning of class includes
PMC3 paste for the project, bezel wire and stone to set, finishing materials and patina work.

Student Supply List: 1 25g PMC3, basic PMC tools (PVC roller, #3 round brush, scalpel), chain or cord the hang finished piece. Tablet or phone capable of connecting with the internet.

PMC3 clay will be available for purchase at market price if students are unable to bring their own.
