Prong Set Petals: Openwork Earrings with Rose Cut Stones--Thursday, August 6, 2-5pm
What better way to show off a pair of rose cut stones than in a hand-fabricated openwork petal shape? These charming earrings will adorn you with style and sparkle as you proudly show off your jewelry-making expertise. The stones truly take center stage in this flattering modified marquise shape, with just three little prongs to securely hold without hiding their beauty and shine.
You will learn to hand-fabricate settings using sterling silver wire. Skills you’ll use include wire shaping and forming, multi-phase soldering, prong formation and secure setting, and hand finishing techniques. The instructor will provide a variety of 10 mm rose cut stones in your choice of colors, or you may source your own unique stones for a truly one-of-a kind look!
