3. INSG.F Flush setting
Dates:
20 September, 2024.
Tuition Fee: €200.
The technique of flush setting, in which the stones are not covered by the metal at all, makes the stones appear larger than they actually are. This type of setting is particularly suitable for small round stones and is often used for " light points" and in tennis bracelets. During the course, exercises will be carried out on silver or bronze plates and semi-finished products.

4. INBI.F Channel setting
Dates:
23 September, 2024.
Tuition Fee: €200.
Channel setting is one of the most common types of setting: this type of mounting gives beauty to stones arranged in a row next to each other. It is a type of setting suitable for not large stones, usually all of the same size. The most used cuts for this type of setting are square and baguette, but excellent results are also obtained with round stones.

5. INSGR.F Bead setting
Dates:
24 September, 2024.
Tuition Fee: €200.
This technique partly recalls the prong setting, but the use of special mills and gravers makes it very different in realization and suitable for objects to be produced in series or simple on unique objects. The setter obtains small prongs by cutting the base metal and shaping the metal blocks according to their own taste.
