Sat 26 May / Claw Setting Unusual Objects Workshop

In this one day Intermediate workshop taught by Sunshine Coast Jeweller Susan Ewington, we will learn to create and troubleshoot setting designs for unusually shaped found objects such as beach glass or stone. 

On the day Susan will demonstrate how to make a simple chunky claw style setting for a beach glass pendant.

This will also include some discussion/demonstrations on variations for bail components and considering more unusual shaped claws and asymmetrical design principles.

This workshop places a strong focus on thinking outside the box. 

Brass and copper practise metals are provided and silver can be purchased on the day if required at a cost of $3 per gram.
