FLUSH SETTING STONE WORKSHOP
Flush setting is a method of setting a stone flush to the surface, where a fine ridge of metal is pushed over the edge of a stone. This specialised workshop facilitated by Sylvia Nevistic starts with a demonstration of the techniques used in flush setting into a piece of copper.
You will be instructed in the anatomy of a faceted stone, measuring, marking, drilling the housing and then setting the stone. After a bit of practice you will have a chance to set coloured stones into a supplied sterling silver signet ring that you may take with you.
All materials are supplied including the stones (cubic zirconias) and silver pendant. This workshop is specialised and suited to the intermediate jeweller; previous experience in jewellery making is essential.
NB: Should you wish to set any other stones, please feel free to bring them along for discussion. The best size for this technique is 1.5mm-3mm, stones should be faceted and round, being at least 7 on the MOHS scale, ie: tourmalines, sapphires, diamonds, cubic zirconias etc.
