Yearning for a taste of rock cutting AND jewelry making? Two of NW Rockhound's favorite teachers are serving up a collaborative class for you to cut your own cabochon stone (with Lanny Kittleson) and create a custom sterling silver ring setting for your gem (with Julia Lowther). You'll love this class so much we'll have to shoo you out of the studio when the class is over. Bring nothing - go home with new jewelry. Beginners welcomed with open arms!
This is a five part class. In the first session you will cut a stone cabochon. You'll learn how to shape and polish a stone into a fine gemstone. This part of the series is also a prerequisite for the advanced cabochon cutting class. Lanny will help you choose a stone that will work best for this class at the shop.
In the next four sessions Julia will teach you all the bezel setting skills needed to turn your gemstone into a wearable work of art!
Silver kit fee is $25 and payable to Julia during the second part of the class series.
