Have you ever looked at a channel-set stone ring and think: "how the heck do they get those stones into those channels securely and without destroying the metal?"

In this one-day class, you will learn how to properly set stones into a channel setting.  At the end of class, you will have completed one channel-set ring with CZ's as shown in the second photo.  You'll get to choose from a straight channel ring or a Chevron-style channel ring.

We will cover:

  • cutting seats for stones
  • securing stones between two opposing walls, 
  • make sure tables of all stones are level and even, 
  • set stones with proper spacing between stones
  • set stones so that they are all at the same height
  • polishing and finishing techniques
