Embellishing Jewelry with Handmade Prong Settings

September 29, 2019 – October 5, 2019

Joanna Gollberg

During this workshop students will use fabrication methods to create a wire prong setting to trap objects in their jewelry. Soldering small to large components, you will learn a variety of soldering techniques (sheet and wire applique, open filigree wire work, and simple kinetics) to add surprising and delightful details to your work. Shortcuts, tips, tricks and techniques are also covered. Students may come with ideas of jewelry designs to complete or the instructor can give assignments. Participants will only be using a torch with two gases in class, such as the Smith Little Torch or the Meco torch. Open to all skill levels. Some soldering experience is helpful.





COURSE FEE: $600
