Gem Setting Masterclass
It was a pleasure to welcome Master Jeweller John Penfold to the Jewellery Collective Workshop to teach a Gem Setting Masterclass recently. We focused on hand fabrication of collets using a setting plate as well as setting faceted gemstones in to a claw setting.
Selecting the right setting burrs and creating correct angles when seating the gemstone was the major focus of this fun one day workshop. Our students created some amazing pieces too!
