The aim of the course is to create designs that begin with the stone. How best can you show all of its qualities? Once you understand how to create simple, reliable settings using conventional techniques you can adapt these processes to truly honour the spirit of the gemstone.
This weekend course introduces students to the exciting art of inlaying crushed stones into silver collets of various shapes. Traditional in Central and South America, this process will allow you to create beautiful silver jewellery of rich and intense colours. We will discuss and learn about different stones in their rough forms and each student will prepare their own stone dust and mixture of colours for their design. Book now.
