If you love a little sparkle and are looking for a classic way to include more faceted gemstones into your jewellery, this is the perfect workshop! 

Tube setting is a method of setting round faceted gemstones. This is stylish way to incorporate colour & beauty of gemstones into your jewellery designs and a fantastic first step towards more complex gemstone settings.  

During this workshop you will first be designing and creating your choice of ring, earrings, or a pendant to host your gemstone.  Followed by learning to make a tube setting from scratch using sterling silver tubing and finishing it off by setting your personally chosen gemstone for a beautifully finished piece of handcrafted jewellery.  

This workshop is for people with basic jewellery making skills and those who have attended previous workshops (soldering skills required - please email if in doubt).

Skills taught :: measuring and selecting gemstones, using a drill press or pendant drill, working with tubing, using burrs, cutting a seat, setting a facetted gemstone, sawing, filing, sanding, finishing.
