In this course you will learn two different ways to make settings for irregular stones and pearls. For the first setting we use liquid wax, for the second one we will make a mould in a plastic sheet. You can also use other materials to get an imprint, such as coins, shells etc.

Statement

Each of our workshops offers an extensive introduction to a specific
technique or method of design. You will be completely immersed into
 the subject matter and will receive plenty of background information,
 enabling you to continue working independently afterwards.

Some of the workshops are open to beginners, as no prior knowledge or
skill is acquired. In the advanced workshops specific techniques are
developed for which you already need to master the basic jewelry 
techniques.



The studio works with 1 regular lecturer (Lotte De Mey) and several
visiting lecturers. All lecturers have several years of experience in 
the subject matter that they teach and have proven both their artistic
and technical merits. With these standards we can offer you a unique
range of high quality workshops.

Conditions

You can assimilate your setting in a jewel of your liking. Different kinds of wax are available to work with: cube, wire, plate and pearls. It's recommended that you already worked with wax once before.
 
When the jewel in wax is finished, it is cast in silver by a specialized firm, after which we have to finish it. The price of the silver is not included in the course. It depends on the size of your piece. You can have something cast starting from 20 €. You decide how many pieces you want to make.
 
One big irregular pearl is included in the price. You can bring more stones and pearls yourself or purchase them in the studio.
