Level 2: Bezel Set Cabochon
Sign up then call 480-788-7336 to schedule your time.
Pre-requisite: Two Level 1 classes must be completed prior to signing up for any Level 2 class.
Class Description: Learn to set a cabochon or flat backed stone into a bezel. You'll make your bezel setting into a pendant in this class. We'll give you as much support and help as you need to achieve your first bezel setting because we know this skill takes practice. We encourage you to repeat this class often as bezel setting is a skill that improves as you do more of them. Once you learn bezel setting, you'll have the ability to enhance any component in your necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings with set stones or cabochons of your choice.
General Notes for all the Metalsmith Workshops: Your class fee includes supplies. It is our goal to have you walking out with a completed item or nearly completed item by the end of class. As always in Tippy's classes, use of tools is included. There's nothing you need to bring as a general rule. For metalsmith class you may be asked to purchase your own N95 face mask available at Ace Hardware. All the other safety equipment is provided including a shop apron and safety glasses. Please wear natural fiber clothing and closed toed shoes. Keep your hair tied back and any dangling jewelry, sleeves or ties way from your hands and face. We ask that you stow your personal belongings away from your working area to provide an unobstructed path to the door and sink area.
