Beginner Silversmithing: Claw Setting
In this workshop, we will be exploring claw setting a pendant - a method of setting stones in a cage of sterling wire for a minimalist look. This process will include measuring your stone for an optimum fit, soldering your wire cage form, measuring your claws, adding a bail, and setting your stone. All supplies are included. A variety of stones will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own stone (flat or mostly flat-backed stones are preferred.) between 0.25-1". A variety of chains will be available to purchase but you may bring your own as well.
Since we will be working with hand tools and treatment chemicals, please wear clothes you wouldn't mind getting dirty. We do not recommend attending this class if you are pregnant.
This will be an approx 3 hour workshop. Workshop location: Common Ground, 123 Main St. Ste C, Greenport NY 11944. Due to insurance requirements, all attendees must be 18 years of age or older.
