CLASS - Simple Hammer Set Cabochon Ring

8 Hour Class

You will make 1 - Argentium Silver Hammer Set Cabochon Ring 
(stone NOT included, see notes below)

You will learn basic:
How to measure and size metal for a ring
Forming ring using a ring mandril
Sawing
Fusing Argentium Silver
Measuring and forming a bezel
Fusing bezel to backplate
Trimming backplate
Fusing or soldering stone setting to ring
Hammer setting stone
Finishing 

This class in an advanced class and you must have had a few classes prior to this one.   

In this class you will set a cabochon using the hammer set method.  This method is used by advanced cab setters as the bezel is thicker and will hold the stone more studily.  This is a substantial and sturdy ring.

The stone is NOT included.  Please bring you own cabochon.  A medium sized stone is best, approximately 1/2" to 1.5" in length.  Any stone much smaller or larger gets harder to set.  Please bring an oval or round stone.  Stones with corners are harder to set and require a bit different technique.  

You may purchase a stone online or you may go to locally to Arrowhead Supply and pick one up in person.  They are master lapidaries and have been cutting stones for many years.
