Description

Faceted stone setting, Tube setting

Stone setting is one of the most enjoyable aspects of jewellery making. Our faceted stone setting workshop will introduce you to tube setting. This is one of the easiest ways to set faceted stones.

What is tube setting?

Tube setting faceted stones gives a very visually clean result. It uses a small amount of specialist tools and gives a very professional looking finish. As the name suggests it uses pre – fabricated tubing in the process. The tubing is used as the setting itself with some adaptations made with a couple of specialised tools and techniques. It lends itself to smaller, more intricate jewellery. Small scale faceted stone settings can also be used on larger pieces of work to give a more contemporary design.

What will we do on the day?

During this one day faceted stone setting workshop we will make a piece of jewellery set with a round stone, finished to a high standard. Help and advice regarding the equipment for this style of setting will be given.

What’s included?

All tools and equipment needed for the technique will be included in the price. Along with refreshments and afternoon tea & cake. Materials are extra. You may work in either silver or copper and this will be available to buy on the day from the studio shop. There will also be a selection of glass faceted stones available at 50 pence each. These are perfectly adequate to use for the class as your first attempt. However if you wish to set a precious stone then please bring one with you. During the faceted stone setting day we will be setting a 5.5mm stone and if you bring your own stone it must be this size. Please contact us for clarification if you are unsure what stone to buy.

At Lunch time;

We are adjacent to the Chesterfield Canal where lunch may be purchased from the cafe or a pack up may be eaten at the picnic site. There is also a Morrisons supermarket close by with a cafe, cash point, etc. The studio is closed and locked over the lunch break and it is fine to leave any belongings if you wish.

Who can attend?

Previous experience of rub over setting for cabochon stones would be useful. But it is not essential. However, tube setting faceted stones requires accurate construction. Therefore this workshop is not open to beginners. You will need to be fairly competent at basic jewellery making techniques in order to attend. This includes soldering, forming techniques and finishing.

Anyone who has previously completed the Beginner’s jewellery making class and / or the Beginner’s stone setting class  may attend. Students from other centres, or individuals practising at home who have competent jewellery making skills, are welcome to attend.

It is up to you to make sure you book the correct course for your ability level. We do not offer refunds or transfers from specialist classes. Please call, e-mail or check the terms & conditions of booking if you are unsure.

  1. Emma Carson (verified owner)

    I did the faceted stone setting course today and really enjoyed it. I was very happy with the ring that I made and can’t wait to make more jewellery using this technique. The content was perfect and I feel confident that I could now set faceted stones on my own. Highly recommended! Thanks Ange.

  2. Michelle East. Chesterfield

    Excellent class. Found the tube setting to be more versatile than other stone setting

  3. Louise Pearson, North Wingfield, Chesterfield

    Fabulous class! I loved the finished product and was surprised how easy the technique was. I have had a great day!

  4. Sarah France. Pleasley, Near Mansfield

    Loved this course. New take on setting stones opens up a wealth of new creations. Thank you.

  5. Stacey Smith, Crich, Matlock

    Really enjoyed today. Did think I’d struggle more but I found it really ok on my skill level I have. But challenging enough too. Amazing results and will be creating again very soon with the new skills I’ve learnt.

  6. Katherine Maund. Chesterfield

    Had a fantastic time, great to learn a new technique and to go home with a fab sparkly ring!

  7. Sue Muddeman. Burton on Trent

    First thing I have made with more precision. Feel proud of it. Good course, learnt a lot.

  8. Julie-Anne Lewis. Alfreton

    I have attended the beginner’s stone setting course and now the tube setting which was thoroughly enjoyable. During this day, each step is heading towards a successful piece of jewellery! Found the day extremely helpful and will use each step at home to set some further rings. Thank you!

  9. Amanda Musgrave. Bakewell

    Really great day. Ange went through each process thoroughly. Enjoyed from start to finish. Enough content, no rushing, I’m really pleased with the result. I’ll definitely make further items with this method.

  10. Kate Singleton. Chesterfield

    A brilliant day – I learned loads and thoroughly enjoyed the new techniques. I enjoyed using new tools which make life so much easier. Great fun and laughs throughout. I will definitely be tube setting stones in future.

  11. Pat Key, Old Whittington

    A friendly and informative class. Enjoyed learning new skills with fantastic support. Content was just right. I made a wearable ring and will practice at home

  12. Cath Johnstone, Chesterfield

    Another really good day learning a useful skill. It is fiddly and challenging but very rewarding, and something I will use in my jewellery making

  13. Gill Corless, Chesterfield

    Waited a long time to attend and really enjoyed the day. Loved what we made and will be doing more of the same very soon in class and maybe at home.

  14. Kath Kearney (verified owner)

    Yet another excellent workshop to learn a new skill – tube-setting. I have been attending Silverpetal classes for just over a year and hadn’t any previous experience of stone setting. As usual Ange had prepared a workbook which outlined the whole process step by step, and she demonstrated and explained each step clearly for all levels. At the end of the day we had each created a beautiful silver ring set with a glass stone and I haven’t stopped wearing it since. Ange also had a good selection of specialist tools/ beginners tube setting sets for sale at very reasonable prices. I’m now making another ring in class, with a different colour of stone, and I’m sure I will use this skill again and again.

  15. Helen Durdy, Sheffield

    Fantastic day learning new skills, and a beautiful ring at the end.

  16. Hayley Tennant, Chesterfield

    Excellent class, really enjoyable. Ange takes her time to explain if you’re finding anything difficult. And I’ve come out with a decent ring. Thanks Ange.

  17. Yvonne McDonagh, Sheffield

    Thank you for today’s tube setting course, really enjoyed the day and very happy with the results! This is the third one day course I have been on and enjoyed them all. Highly recommended.

  18. Alison Breedon, Chesterfield.

    Enjoyed the day. A very informative class.
