This fast-paced one day workshop will have you cutting, stamping, soldering and forming sterling silver wire and sheet into a one-of-a-kind setting for a gorgeous statement ring. You’ll learn how to size and solder a ring band, create a bezel from scratch, and work with twisted or round bead wire to create a “frame” for your cabochon. We’ll even make some of those cool silver balls to add to the mix! Then we’ll finish by setting your stone cleanly using simple tools and age-old techniques.
