Flush and Pinpoint Setting

This one-day workshop teaches Flush setting, and a variation- Pinpoint setting. Flush setting is an advanced setting procedure. Precise craftsmanship must be executed throughout the process to accomplish the desired look.

In this class you will practice the steps required to accomplish this clean, modern setting technique using 3mm CZ’s and silver. In addition to the basic Flush setting you will learn to use a graver to pull small points of metal over the stone creating the Pinpoint setting.

Methods for finishing the setting and dealing with problems will be discussed and practiced as needed.

Bonus technique- make your own point burnisher. I will demo how to make this valuable tool. If time allows you can make your own.

All tools and materials are included. Flush setting tools may be purchased at the workshop. Please bring Optivisors (magnifiers.) Snacks and beverages are permitted.
