Join me to learn all about how to build modified prong settings to incorporate gemstone settings into your work. I'll demonstrate how to modify a bezel seat to create a prong or tab setting using hard wax. I'll also show how to build a prong setting using soft wax and wire wax. I'll show a bunch of fun ways to create prong settings for flat back or irregular shaped stones. This is an intermediate class; if you don't know how to make a bezel seat I suggest watching my class on bezel setting first. You'll receive a link to watch my tutorial, a list of suggested tools and where to purchase and resources for where to get your wax cast into metal.
Check out my free video talking about lost wax casting and the tools and materials that are involved in wax carving.
How many times will I be able to watch the tutorial? As many as you'd like! The class is yours forever.
Do I need to take the classes in order of their lessons? Definitely not! You can watch the projects you feel most interested in, or watch them in order. Each lesson increases in difficulty slightly as I focus on laying the foundations and building skills and techniques on top of that.
Do I need any jewelry making experience for this? No, this is for absolute beginners or can be a great refresher for those with some experience.
What tools are needed for the class? I try to keep the classes as basic as possible and use as little tools as possible, while also showing a bunch of different options. I'm teaching these classes at my kitchen table, so you can do it too! I recommend watching my free video which goes over tools, materials and the process.
