On day one students will make a ring, pendant or earrings with a bezel setting in wax, which will be professionally cast.  On day two students will clean up their cast pieces, prepare them for setting, and set their stones. Students will then have the opportunity to explore making settings for more stones, such as rough-cut stones.
