So you want to set stones in your PMC pieces, well this is the workshop for you!
We will cover making your back plate, setting fine silver wire for prongs and applying pre-purchased bezel cups in PMC. Your piece will be fired and finished and patina applied, and finally you will set your cabochons, and pre-purchased stone in the bezel cups. You will also learn how to use a butane torch to make your prongs. Lunch break will be given.
