On 21st April 2012 Georgina Franklin taught a stone setting workshop in my studio, with myself offering a helping hand. We had a very good day with some ambitious rings made. All students had some previous experience, which allowed them to work on projects a little more complicated. Kerry made two rings using claw settings. She did a brilliant job of making the round claw setting which involved lots of very delicate soldering. Bridget used 18k gold to make her rub over settings, something she had not done before and was quite nervous about. Finally Heather - who has lots of making experience - wanted to polish up her skills and learn different ways to set. She set a very deep stone into the band in an unusual way, including learning how to forge the ring to a tapered edge.
We were all delighted with the final results, with thanks going to Georgina for that final tweak!
