You will become familiar with the tools of the trade such as specialty hand tools, torch, jewelers flex shaft, polishing motor, and more. Through individual help and class demonstration you will learn about layout, piercing, filing, forming, soldering, stone setting and finishing. You will complete 3 main projects, each teaching you specific skills needed to complete the ones that follow. Your final project is a piece where you will set a stone. This is where all of the technical knowledge you've learned in the previous projects is put to use to create the design of your choice (given its within your abilities and knowhow).
