Tube Set Gemstones - Intermediate Jewelry Series


Students will learn how to make a setting out of a piece of thick-walled sterling silver tubing for a faceted gemstone. Tube settings are essentially small bezels made from tubing and are useful for adding colorful stones to your designs. During this class we will review how to utilize the tube setting both as a bezel and a setting with prongs. This class builds upon techniques learned in both the Basic Bezel Class and the Pedestal Prong class. Educator: Leah Meleski.
