Faceted gemstones come in all different shapes and sizes and all of them need a setting to keep them safe. In this class you learn to create bezel settings for a variety of different shaped stones and different ways of finishing them.
This class is perfect if you want to give the outside of your settings some shape. You start by learning how to make a straight walled setting and then move on to tapered and curved outsides. It’s quick in wax to give the outside a little shape and it brings some personality to your settings.
This class doesn’t cover how to set stones, only how to make the settings. A basic knowledge on stone setting is helpful to make the most out of this class.

Hi I’m Sandy. I learned jewellery making, including wax carving, at the school of jewellery in Dublin. After finishing my course, I taught at the school for a year and I also taught a wax carving workshop at Lucy Walker Jewellery in Kuala Lumpur.
After learning all the basics of wax carving, I practiced and experimented A LOT. Something didn’t work out the first time I tried it? No problem, just try again (and again and again…) until it does work! Practice really is the only way to get better at something :)
I made this class to help you in your wax carving journey. It’s made with love (and some exasperated sighs and curses when things don’t go like I want them to). I love wax carving and I’m excited to teach you!
