Basic 2 - Bezel Settings        6:00 - 9:00

(Raychel Wengenroth)               

Thirsting for more knowledge? This is the perfect class to expand upon the techniques you learned in Basic 101.  Cabochon stones can be added using a variety of bezel setting methods. The project of a plain bezel cup incorporated into a pendant, pin or ring introduces soldering techniques in a logical step by step process. It also allows for individual design elements with the bail or ring shank. This is where the fun really begins!

Skill Level: Basic 101

Tuition: $300

Lab Fee: $15

Materials: Students bring their own or purchase from HVS

Basic 3 - Get 3-D           6:00 - 9:00

(Raychel Wengenroth)

Let's shift towards a sculptural approach and explore more in depth knowledge of how to construct and solder with increased efficiency. Hollow rings are a great way to exercise your technical and fitting skills. Learn how to make the inner ring fit perfectly, then design anything you like for the outside shape with consideration to comfort and practicality...or not! These techniques are easily translated to containers and 3 dimensional components of all kinds. 

Skill Level: Basic 101 & Basic 2

Tuition: $300

Lab Fee: $15

Materials: Students bring their own or purchase from HVS
