Tube set stones add a sleek sparkle to jewelry designs. In this class, students create a variety of rings from thin to thick bands and then learn the simple steps to embellishing the pieces with tube set stones. Students learn to fabricate the settings from tube using saws, files and rotary tools fitted with setting burrs. This class is perfect for the student who has had some metal jewelry making experience and wants to advance their skills with a new technique.
