Make a stone set ring or pendant - silversmithing workshop
In this introduction to bezel setting workshop, you will be taken through the steps to create a beautiful piece of jewellery featuring a semi-precious cabochon set in sterling silver. During this full day workshop, we'll start by designing your piece, either a ring or pendant. First you’ll select your stone and work from there. This will be a simple setting, but completed to the highest standard, giving you all of the skills you need to continue making these on your own. On the day you'll be able to select your cabochon from our beautiful range of stones which is included in the price of the workshop. You’ll learn to size the bezel needed for a stone, cut the right length of your bezel wall, saw out the backplate of the setting, solder a setting together, polish your piece, and finally set your stone to create your stunning, unique piece of jewellery. There will be members of the Noctua team at hand throughout this process to support, advise and teach you the skills needed while allowing you to make the ring or pendant independently. This is a very interactive workshop but suitable for beginners. However, people with prior experience of jewellery making may find this easier and finish quicker. If you need glasses for reading then we recommend you bring them on the day, along with wearing old clothes. You will need to wear closed-toe shoes and tie up long hair. We do not have a strict age limit but please enquire before booking a class for anyone under the age of 16 just to confirm it will be suitable. All under 16’s in the workshop will need to be with a participating adult.
