In this 2-day workshop students will learn how to make a heavy castellated bezel that is uniform and unique. Get a feel for the Western Style with this castellated ring described as segmented sections around the turquoise stone that allow to setting the stone with very thick metal. We will use special tools that mark and guide the cuts on the bezel wire and pliers to wrap the bezel wire to fit the stone. Students will learn how to solder this unique bezel and then will attach it to a backplate, then attach a sturdy band, add embellishments to create a real statement piece. Finally, finish with a bright shine or patina to get the look you want. Crank your stone setting skills up a notch by learning this rewarding technique that gives your piece a Southwestern flair.
