Gain the skills to showcase any stone with a well-crafted bezel! Learn techniques to create three distinctive settings that are just as beautiful as the gemstones they house.
Join jewelry artist Danielle Miller-Gilliam, and find out how to make a bezel setting for a variety of flat-backed stones: even irregular, square, and pear-shaped selections. First, discover how to measure your bezel and test your stone during fabrication to ensure the perfect fit. Learn how backplates enhance the design of your setting, and use accessible soldering techniques to create the foundation for stunning rings and pendants. You'll find out how to craft smooth, gap-free settings, and conquer irregularly shaped stones with fabrication techniques like how to solder crisp bezel corners as well as proper positioning when setting the stone. You'll even learn to use your chisel and hammer (or flex shaft) to turn sheet metal into a structural bezel, and follow along with Danielle to refine your settings. Finally, discover the safest, most effective ways to polish your stones and projects for professional-quality results.
