Bezel set ring making with Sharon Z - a weekend jewelry class

to Aug 18

Bezel set ring making with Sharon Z - a weekend jewelry class

  • 833 Market Street San Francisco (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

What is a bezel? A bezel is a strip of metal that wraps around a stone and holds it in place. They can be plain or decorative, smooth or rugged, even and perfect, or organic and off-beat. The basic construction and process though, almost always starts the same way - with a special stone that you pick out, and a design that speaks to you.

Sometimes I’ll be at a show and someone will look at a piece. They will marvel at how it even gets made. I have to admit that it seems magical at times, even to me. Bezel settings were one of the most mysterious things in jewelry before I took my first class - how did they do that? In this workshop, we’ll be breaking down and demystifying how to build a bezel setting and set a ring step-by-step. This workshop is open to all students, though we recommend having some comfort and experience with a jewelers torch. Not sure if you have the necessary experience? Contact Sharon in advance to find out!

  • The price of the class is $375, and the materials fee is $50. Pay in advance for the class, and bring $50 cash, check or Venmo on the day of your class.

  • The class includes all silver and a semi-precious stone for setting. Rose quartz, garnet and agate and more will be available, and students will be able to select their own from our collection.

  • 3.5 hours each day, 7 hours total

  • All tools, hair ties, and safety goggles will be provided. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and closed-toed shoes to protect your feet.

  • Max of 9 students, minimum of 3

  • Cut off for class sign up is 72 hours in advance of the class.

Oh my I had so much fun at this ring stacking class with Sharon Zimmerman! I’ve made a ton of things in my life but I was still kind of intimidated when Sharon told me we would be making five stacking rings from scratch. She immediately put my mind (and hands) at ease! She demonstrated each step and gave me plenty of instructions so I felt confident during every step. I was so excited to see my finished set of rings! My husband asked me 3 times “you made those?” which made me feel like they must have looked very professional. Sharon is a great teacher and made the class extra fun - she even provides snacks :)

Sprues and Molds with Jena Hounshell

Join master caster and mold maker Jena Hounshell for a weekend course about the mold-making and spruing process to turn yourself into a Spruru™ (Sprue Guru)! Learn to design your jewelry pieces with molds and sprues in mind. Where to place your sprue can impact how well your casting turns out, and incorporating a sprue into your wax carving can make a huge difference in the ease of your work. Get actionable instruction that you can incorporate into your designs!

Students are encouraged to bring 1-2 pieces that they will want to mold for reproduction. The class includes one finished mold that they will get to take home. Some additional tools will be available for purchase. Each class is 3.5 hours and will be 10am - 1:30pm each day.

This class is geared towards students with basic wax carving and jewelry-making skills. Prerequisite is prior wax carving experience, or our intro to Wax Carving Workshop. Wondering if you have the requisite wax skills? Contact Sharon to find out if this is the right class for you.

After receiving a BFA from the University of Washington in 2005, she worked as an apprentice at a precious metal foundry in Seattle. In 2012 she opened her own casting shop in San Francisco and has since been servicing fine jewelers, designers and metal workers across the country. She approaches casting with a technical eye, an appreciation for design, and a commitment to craft.

Small Business, Big Impact

We entrepreneurs in the Bay Area are so fortunate to have access to resources that support our businesses. 5 years ago, I had a transformative experience taking a Business Planning Class at the Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center. Their continued support is a big part of the reason why I am still in business and I an so grateful.
