One Day Gemstone Setting Class

Learn how to set Gemstones into Jewellery

Our One Day Gemstone Setting Class is the perfect place to start if you want to try your hand at Jewellery design and making or have done previous courses and want to develop your skills further!

We understand how daunting it is to start something new & how easy it is to lose it, if you don’t use it. We pride ourselves on small intimate classes, this is so that:

1. You, our students feel comfortable in your new explorations

2. Our teachers can really get to know you and help and guide you through each class.

What will I learn

In this fun and flexible gemstone setting class, you will learn how to set one or numerous gemstones using a flush setting into a sterling silver ring or pendant.
 
The emphasis of this course is to learn how to set gemstones- which can be tricky! So as to enable fitting everything into one day we have pre-made the sterling silver pendants and rings, as pictured above, and you can choose from an array of different coloured cubic zirconia gemstones- all 2mm so as to make your life easier!
 
It is very easy to break or lose gemstones when trying this technique for the first time, hence why we have chosen a beautiful but cheap stone for you. You will spend the morning practising on copper before you set your gemstones into your final sterling silver piece.
 
It’s open to all learning stages and you will have the help and guidance of our experienced goldsmith and tutor who will be there to guide and support you with her extensive knowledge within creating and stone setting.

Duration of Course

From 10-5:30pm, with an hour lunch break. We are in a wonderful spot, Drury Street in Dublin City Centre, so choose from lots of fabulous places all on our doorstep or bring a picnic and eat it in St Stephen’s Green which is just around the corner.
