Workshop - Bezel setting a gemstone, dichroic glass cabochon or sea glass (finish time is an estimate as sessions often run over). This workshop is better suited to those with some silver soldering experience (not with a soldering iron) and prior silver smithing experience. We don't do a copper practice on this workshop and move straight to silver. You will make a ring or halo pendant from silver wire before creating the bezel setting for either a small gemstone, dichroic glass cabochon or sea glass. The bezel is created from scratch using bezel strip and silver sheet to create the setting for your chosen stone. This is then soldered onto the ring or a bail attached before finally setting a stone/glass of your choice. Silver and small stones/sea glass are provided however please feel free to bring your own stone/sea glass if you have something you want to use. The option to 'upgrade' to a larger gemstone may be available on the day and a quantity of larger gemstones and additional silver will be available to buy if you wish to do this. Please note this is dependant on the supply of stones I have available on the day of the workshop. A typical example of a stone included in the price of the course would be a 10 mm dichroic glass cabochon, similar sized round gemstone or sea glass. Larger stones available are for example a 25 mm x 18 mm irregular shaped labradorite, Larimar or opal etc. This upgrade option is only recommended for people confident with soldering and saw piercing.
