Stone Setting Intensity

sample rings we used to learn stone setting techniques - my week's worth of work!

Last week I went to the New Approach School for Jewelers to take the Stone Setting Comprehensive class. I brushed up on my skills, learned some new techniques and tricks and had loads of fun! It was a fabulous and intense week! Now I can't wait to carve out some time to make new designs to utilize my new skills!!!

Good for you!! I went in June - AWESOME class, 'eh? Your settings look great! I came back so energized and excited about setting. I just need to figure out how to make some decent forms to set into!

I really wanted to go to that this summer, but the classes were already filled up.
