Make a stone set ring or pendant from scratch

Make a stone set ring or pendant from scratch

About the Course

During this workshop you will have the choice to design a ring or pendant, with your choice of beautiful cabochon all while learning and utilizing traditional silversmithing and stone setting techniques.

You will have the freedom to design your piece, starting off by choosing a cabochon from our collection (included in workshop cost!). Once you have decided on a pendant or ring, you will learn to make the bezel that holds the stone in place, along with making the ring band or bail from scratch.

This will include measuring the bezel needed to fit the stone, cutting out the bezel wall, sawing out the backplate and soldering it together. Finally you will then polish your piece and fit your stone into the bezel.

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.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
