All Day Silver Gem Setting Workshop

All Day Workshop Learning to Bezel Set Stones in Silver Jewellery



5 hours Class size 1 to 4

label $495 - $500
($500 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $495 for 2+ guests)

In this intimate four-person workshop you will make a domed nest ring in your own style in the morning before making a gemstone bezel set ring or pendant in the afternoon.

Sarah will guide students in how to create a sterling silver ring, create a domed bowl of copper or brass and attach small nuggets into the centre resulting in a custom nest ring in the morning while you learn the basics of working with precious metals.

After a delicious locally sourced lunch you will return to the studio in the afternoon to build on the skills you learnt in the morning to create a custom sterling silver bezel for your chosen gemstone from Sarah's collection. Once you have set your bezel you will learn how to attach it to a ring or turn it into a pendant to wear or gift with pride.

You will be guided through the process at your own pace, from designing your custom piece, marking out your design, cutting, forging, soldering, sanding, texturing and then finally finishing your new treasure.

Sarah knows that once you start working with semi-precious metals you'll be hooked! So in order to ensure you are able to create further projects at home on the completion of your class, there is a strong focus on using tools that are readily available and you are able to set up at home.

The cost of all your materials including your Sterling Silver and your gemstone is included in the cost of this class!

Sarah Munnings

4.9 (18)

Sarah Munnings was working in the corporate world of finance and when she was struck down by a devastating mystery illness. Tests, more tests, and months of trips to doctors led to the diagnoses of Fibromyalgia (a chronic pain condition). This led to Sarah to rediscover her creativity as her own personal form of rehabilitation and become a self-taught jeweller who developed a table top jewellery practice in her kitchen.

She now teaches others the amazing creations that can be made using copper, silver and brass. She uses traditional techniques of forging, soldering and texturing metal, and is passionate about using tools that are easily accessible so that her guests at workshops can continue their journey of discovery at home.
