Since stone cutting began, gems and minerals of all kinds have been incorporated into the art of jewelry fabrication. Because of the diversity and distinct characteristics of gemstones, multiple setting techniques have been developed throughout the centuries to enhance each stone’s brilliance and wearability. The basics of several setting techniques, including prong, bezel and handmade basket settings are taught during this class. Students receive hands-on instruction and learn to apply the proper techniques to strengthen their jewelry-making capabilities.
