In this silversmithing class, you will learn to create bezel settings for cabochons (flat- backed gemstones) and add premade prong settings along with silver embellishments for either a pendant or ring. Your supply cost will be based on the items you choose (typically under $40). If you have flat-backed stones you want to use, please bring them to class. There will be a selection available for purchase in class as well. Prong settings will be available for round stones only and a selection of faceted CZs will be available for purchase. Studio consumables such as solder and flux will be provided. Students will need to bring a torch and soldering block to class. The following will cut down on sharing time, but are not required: jewelry files, hammers, mallets, and pliers, and a steel block.

Call 901-636-4128 to prepay due by Noon Wednesday May 15th. $60 MBG members/$85 non-members (+ supply fee).
