Silver Jewellery Making Course: Claw/Prong Stone Setting Technique

View Classes

Learn how to set a stone with our jewellery making courses in Sydney.

This very informative and hands-on Stone Setting course will teach you everything you need to know on how to make a beautiful ring with the popular claw (also known as prong) setting. In this course, you will learn the setting by turning up a silver strip to the correct size, soldering and it rounding out, then position and solder claws onto the setting.

With the professional help of our tutor, you will be using the flex shafts with confidence, push the claws over the stone and finish up with a perfect trim and clean.

At the end of this course, you will go home with a handmade masterpiece made by you!
