Carved Stone And Custom Setting

June 7, 2020 – June 13, 2020

Julia Harrison

Say “so long” to common cabochons and basic bezels. In this workshop students will learn to carve medium-hard rocks and stones using a variety of approaches, with an emphasis on hand tools and low-tech lapidary techniques. You will enjoy having creative control over your stones and your settings. Participants will create a unique setting that shows off their shaped and polished stone and finish at least one wearable piece, such as a pendant or brooch. Class demonstrations include introducing a range of tensioned and embedded settings and findings. Previous soldering experience is required.


Julia Harrison is a Seattle-based artist, educator and Jewelry/Metals manager for Pratt Fine Arts Center. She has taught workshops at Haystack, Penland and the 92nd Street Y. She enjoys carving after years of working with wood. Her recent carving projects feature materials including cement, soap, jet, brick, agate and obsidian.
