Jewellery Making: Tab-Set Pendant Workshop

Description: If you want to create a custom setting for a cabochon stone (or other flat-backed object), but don’t want to fabricate a soldered setting, then this cold-connection technique is for you! In this workshop, you’ll learn how to create a tab setting for your flat-backed stone or object. You’ll create a pendant setting out of Copper or Sterling Silver, which can be customized with your own accents and finishing touches (e.g., textures, decorative borders, and cut-outs). Finally, you’ll set your stone or object, and bring home your unique tab-set pendant! Please bring your own cabochon stone (or other flat-backed object, such as a meaningful coin) to the workshop. Please keep the stone/object within this size range: no smaller than 15x15mm, and no larger than 40x40mm, with a height of no more than 7mm. No experience necessary; all levels welcome. Previous experience with a jeweller’s saw would be beneficial to this class, as you’ll be able to create a more elaborate setting within the allotted timeframe, if desired. Material fee included in the price.
