Stone Set Pendant Workshop - Saturday 9th May 2020
Learn all the traditional silversmithing techniques you need to create a beautiful pendant with a bezel set cabochon stone! This workshop is suitable for beginners to jewellery making as it teaches many of the basic skills needed for more advanced skills, however those with previous experience will also find their skills tested and improved by the end of the session. The last five photos show examples of pendants made at previous stone setting workshops.
Only 8 places are available to ensure that everyone gets the help and attention they need. Under 16 year olds are welcome but will need to be accompanied by a paying adult.
Tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes are included in the workshop fee, but lunch is not provided.

The workshop fee includes 4cm by 4cm of sterling silver sheet, suitable for creating a stone-set pendant, bezel wire for setting the stone, wire for bails and a sterling silver trace chain. The cost of the stone is extra and payable on the day, and a good selection of stones from £2 upwards is available for you to choose from.
