Classes: Cabochon Pendant


Class 4: Stone Cabochon Pendant

In this fun three-hour class students will create a pendant using a freeform shaped stone cabochon of their choice. You may bring your own stone or purchase one from the great selection available at Nickaleena. I will help you design a unique setting for your pendant. Using either sterling silver or copper sheet metal, we will texture the background using stamps and hammers, as shown, or your own pattern. Techniques learned will be: Cutting with the jewelers saw, stamping, soldering, filing, sanding, drilling, measuring and making the silver bezel, setting the cabochon inside the bezel, making a bail, antique patina, and polishing. Some tools will be available in class. Students will be required to bring a butane torch (which can be purchased at Lowes or Home Depot), butane, basic jewelry tools, metal ruler, chasing hammer and bench block. Some of these items can be purchased at the store if needed. Space is limited. Class fee must be paid to reserve a spot. It is an easy technique you can use to make many fine pieces of jewelry.
