Creative settings 1:

During this course you can expect a detailed explaination about different kinds of settings: pearl setting (round), clawsetting, bezel setting, inner setting and crown setting. You learn to create every setting yourself and you learn how to make variations, so you will be able to use different kind of stones.

 

There are so many different kind of stones and pearls (size, colour, price) that it is required to purchase your own material. For the bezel setting you can use a smooth stone as well as a cutted one in every geometrical shape (round, square, octagon, rectangle). For the pearl setting you need a round pearl. The claw setting is meant for irregular stones, they do require two flat sides (up and bottom). The inner setting is a variation on the bezel setting. You can use a smooth stone for this as wel as a cutted one in every geometrical form (round, square, octagon, rectangle). The crown setting is very suitable for smaller, cutted stones. Choose a round stone for this one, 3 to 5 mm.

 

Do you need some help to find the correct stones, don't hesitate to send me an email. Tip: stones used in rings should have a hardness 7. The smaller the stone, the more difficult, start with size 8 to 10 mm.
