2 Day Gem Cutting and Setting Workshop
In this class you will learn to cut cabochon stones and then choose one to set in a pendant. On day one you will cut four to six stones and choose one to make into a finished piece of jewellery. On day two you will make a pendant and learn to set your stone.
We bring in a lapidary expert to teach the gem cutting portion and one of our in house goldsmiths teaches the goldsmithing portion. There is an additional material charge for this course of $35 plus HST. The course includes 10 grams of sterling silver. To run this class we need a minimum of 3 students.

You are welcome to sign up for only the gem setting portion of the class for our regular one day course fee but it will only include 5 grams of sterling silver and a 5mm round cabochon gemstone.
