Discover how to set your favorite OMG gemstones into a contemporary ring design that’s sure to “Make a Statement”. Using square and half-round wires, students will learn how to formulate and finish this beauty so it fits every time. Class discussions will include: choosing the right stone for the right ring style and finger size; how to use ring sizers and mandrels that do not match; pricing your work for profit and more.
The workshop fee includes teacher’s fee, all necessary silver wire, choice of faceted stone, and written follow-up instructions. Each student will receive a sterling silver wire kit and then choose their favorite from a selection of OMG faceted gemstones to set in their new ring. (Stones may include but are not limited to: Lodolite, Citrine, Smoky, Amethyst, Tourmalinated or Rutilated Quartz.) Students will wear their new ring out of class!
