The course is presented in 3 projects that focus on an alternative approach to developing ideas for your jewellery, while also expanding technical skills.

By the end of this course you will know how to use traditional techniques to set small facetted stones into the surface of your jewellery, encapsulate unusually- shaped stones into your jewellery using repousse and chasing techniques, make a setting for a stone that allows movement by pivoting or by encapsulation – and you will have designed and made 3 pieces of jewellery with stones set into them.
