Love gems? Love precious metal? Then you are going to love this bezel stone setting class.

You will learn how to design and fabricate a bezel set ring using sterling silver or gold (9kt*). You will learn the basics of designing, hammering, sawing, measuring, sizing, annealing, soldering, filing, and polishing the final piece to display to perfection your stone setting.

You will use the basic stone setting techniques of hand bezel setting tools, files, measuring, burnishing, and finding the true shape of the stone to facilitate getting your desired result. It is so fantastic to show your friends what a fabulous stone you have set in just an afternoon.

Cabochon stones available: Moonstone^, Labarodite^, Aquamarine** , Amethyst^, Crystal^, Rose Quartz^, Lapis^, Prehnite^, Howelite turquoise^, Kingman Turquoise** tigerseye^, Tourmaline**, Peridot**, Emerald**, Ruby** Diamond**are just some of the fabulous rocks we have available in our workshop.

I tend to prefer larger prominent stones, but am happy to use any suitable stone you may wish to reset. Small gems under 1/2 carat aren't advised as focal pieces, due to them not being distinctive enough to make a statement.

^These stones are included in the workshop at no additional charge.

*9kt, 14k or 18k gold is available as an extra embellishment and can be purchased at the workshop.

**These stones are sold by carat weight and can be purchased at the workshop if desired.

The Art of being a maker!
Makers take raw materials and transform them into objects of desire.
It is an art form, it is a craft, and it can be learned!

Come and experience a workshop with Masterful Makers. In as little as 2 hours you can walk out with a piece of handmade jewellery, leather bag, stunning knotted mala or your own personalized skincare products. All designed and crafted by you!

Let me introduce myself, I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer & maker of crafts. I am the owner of Masterful Makers and offer boutique workshops from my studio.

My love for art, the history of man and pretty shiny things came together while being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context and heavy with human drama. They were an artefact, an antique and pretty. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire I began to make my first wrapped earrings. It was very therapeutic and relaxing, until my husband (at the time) saw the box of earrings I had made and took them to work. He returned that afternoon and presented me with a box of money, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began.

That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now!

I have my BA in art history and a Diploma in Visual Arts and Silversmithing.

I use my workshops to pass on my skills and knowledge so that you too will see just how enjoyable being a Maker can be. Coming away with personally designed and created pieces!

I am Victoria White and Making is my passion, let me make it yours as well!

Come and experience a Masterful Makers Workshop!
