"Stone on Stone"
Look at this gorgeous pendant—this is an example of what techniques you will learn in this workshop!
In this workshop, you will attach a small bezel set cabochon onto a larger cabochon and then create a bezel and silver structure to hold both stones. In doing this, you will be guided through the following techniques: drilling holes in cabochons, making the mechanism to attach one cab to another, bezel setting cabochons, tube setting small faceted stones, how to make your bezels unique through sawing, stamping and hammering, and a lot of little tricks to get a perfect set cab every time.
