Stone Setting with Melissa Joy Manning

200.00

Learn how to set the stone of your choice in a ring or earring.  Working in a small group, we will review stones and their metaphysical and spiritual properties.  Participants will choose a stone that appeals to them from an array of stones from Melissa's personal collection.  Opals, crystals and other gems will be up for grabs.  Select what speaks to you and work to create your own ring or our signature Dzhugdz earring.  Once your stone is selected, the workshop will break into small groups wherein you will learn the basic prong setting techniques.  Using jeweler's hand tools, you will set your precious stone in gold.  Melissa will work with each student to guide shaping, cutting and setting of their select stones.  We will also review polishing and care of jewelry.
