Sight Specific


SIGHT SPECIFIC: Flush+ Bead Setting Contemporary Jewelry Workshop

Jewelry is the context for installation. Incorporating with stones or other objects to create new space within a (un)limited surface.  The workshop offers the fundamental of flush setting and bead setting techniques. Gem identification and metal selection specifically related to these setting styles will be the departure for this workshop. Students create their own setting tools, and learn how to customize other hand tools and gravers for setting.  The workshop also explores the various setting styles, both traditional and non-traditional, stepping into the boundaries between conventional and unconventional around the stone setting practice in contemporary jewelry.
