About the event
In this course, students will learn to make creative bezels that are a bit more exciting than the typical bezel wire variety. We’ll cover castellated bezels, reverse bezels, heavy walled bezels, tapered bezels and more. Students will learn to make beautiful settings for stones and can expect to leave with at least one finished piece of jewelry!
