Gemstone Setting Silver Jewellery Making Workshop

Learn to Bezel Set Stones in Silver Jewellery



2.5 hours Class size 1 to 5

label $175 (or 4 payments of $43.75 Afterpay)

For those who have completed one of Sarah Munnings silver workshops this intermediate class will teach you how to create a bezel setting and set a gemstone into your own piece of jewellery.

Over two and a half hours you will learn to build on your prior skills to create a custom bezel for your chosen gemstone and how to turn it into your own Sterling Silver Ring or Pendant in a design of your own style. 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 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.

Sarah was helpful and patient. I enjoyed the class. The work area was very good and in an interesting art works/gallery setting in The Old Auction House. There were only 5 students in class, so Sarah was able to assist all.

Sarah is a great teacher. Really patient and willing to give new ideas a go, she has a wealth of knowledge to make all your design ideas become real. This is our second class and loved every minute.

Jennifer Finley Feb 2022


Another great workshop with Sarah. 1:2 this session so a lot of individual support. All materials supplies, silver, stones, solder etc. My piece was a bezel set labradorite pendant. Bit of filing left to do at home, can't wait to make another one!

Sarah was absolutely wonderful. She made everything seem achievable even as beginners. She is very accommodating and very patient. The class was amazing. We created jewellery that was just beautiful. The class was very well priced. I can't wait to join in another of her classes.
