This workshop explores alternative solutions for setting and displaying your stones, found objects and enamels. 

Anat will work with each student to design and fabricate the best setting or mounting for their piece. These settings will go beyond bezels, to include prongs, tabs, riveted and more styles of fun and innovative captures. As the instructor and students work together on custom settings, all of the students will be able to benefit by observing all the creative mountings created during the class.  

Techniques taught:
• Tab settings
• Prong style settings
• Trapped and riveted setting
• Shadow box style settings
• Alternative mountings, like stitching
• Mounting techniques for wall pieces

Kit of materials and use of tools included with the class. Each student has a bench with a set of tools and equipment to use during class.

Class policies for refunds, transfers and cancelations.



Students must have basic jewelry fabrication skills, like sawing, filing, soldering, polishing, etc. Like successful completion of Basic Jewelry 1 or Basic Jewelry 1 & 2. Also, since this class is focused on setting enamels, students should have basic enameling skills and have completed pieces to set. Alternatively, students can set similar size and shape objects, like stones or cabochons, instead of enamels. 

Location: Silvera Jewelry School, Berkeley, CA
