If you love big colorful cabochons and want to discover decorative ways to enhance their settings, this live, virtual class is for you! Students will learn to create dramatic step bezels and reverse bezels with stamping, ornamental line chasing, piercing, and roller printing that are perfect for showing off opaque or translucent stones. These bezels can be incorporated into jewelry or dangle alone from a chain. Students will also learn tips for setting cabs with corners, straight sides, and asymmetrical shapes.
As a bonus, Victoria will show the class how to transform an old screwdriver into a simple but highly useful chasing liner and how to use liners to chase freeform patterns and designs on your bezels.
