This workshop is designed for students who have previously taken Amanda's Intro to Metal Jewelry (Metalsmithing #1) and her Intro to Soldered Jewelry or Spinning Ring Workshops (Metalsmithing #2) Workshops. It requires some intermediate metal working skills, and knowledge of the behavior of the heated material.
In this Intro to Bezel Settings workshop, we’ll be creating a bezel setting for a non-calibrated cabochon. You'll start with a cabochon, metal sheet and metal strips, and learn how to use the stone to form the perfect bezel setting for that particular stone.
In the previous workshop, you learned pick soldering. This workshop will use pick soldering and learn a new soldering technique called chip soldering.
You’ll learn about flux, oxidation, pickle, and more. You’ll learn how the metal behaves as it’s heating to the correct temperature to accept the solder, how the flux behaves, and what the metal looks like just before the melting point!
The price of this workshop varies, depending on the materials you’d like to work with. If you’d like to make a bezel setting in copper, the workshop cost is $55. If you’d like to make a bezel setting in sterling silver, the workshop cost is $75.
This listing is for the admittance of one person to a scheduled workshop at Maine Jewelry & Art at 100 Harlow Street in Bangor. Please choose the number of tickets you'll be purchasing.
Tickets are non-refundable, but may be transferrable for a later date, as available.
If you have any further questions, or prefer to pay by phone, please call us at 207 941-8600. I look forward to seeing you!
