Bezel Setting
Jewelry Fabrication - Bezel Setting
with Tara Magboo

2 Day Workshop: Sunday, March 5th and Sunday March 12th, 2017
Time: 10 AM - 6 PM (with half hour lunch break)
Fee: $225 + $35 Materials fee

The bezel setting is not only the oldest form of stone setting, it is also the most secure method of setting. Bezels have a clean, sleek look because of the thin band of metal that holds the stone firmly in place. This type of setting is typically the first form of stone setting that a student learns to fabricate.

Demonstrations will be given on bezel construction, soldering, ring fabrication and quick finishing techniques. Traditional bezel fabrication will be demonstrated as well as a modified bezel setting. A modified bezel has a decorative pattern cut into the setting and can greatly enhance one's jewelry design.

Each student will leave the workshop having fabricated their own silver ring with a bezel set cabochon as well as a pendant with a modified bezel setting.
