Come to the jewelry studio and learn how to set a round or oval cabochon stone in silver!

In this intensive, two weekend class, you will learn all the skills you need to create one or two rings or pendants with a bezel set stone. Add your own design style with texture, patina, and embellishments.

In addition to bezel setting, students will have opportunity to learn about sawing, filing, texturing, stamping, soldering, polishing and finishing.

Erica is a multi-passionate silversmith, SoulCollage® facilitator, and teaching artist, based in Hunterdon County NJ. She earned her BA in art therapy from New Jersey City University in 2012, and studied mental health counseling and art therapy on the graduate level at Caldwell University. As an exhibiting silversmith, Erica is fascinated by the deep, personal connection people form with jewelry. These objects hold meaning, memory and even identity as they become interwoven into the lives of their wearers. In her work, she strives to honor the age-old practice of body adornment as a meaningful ritual of empowerment and transformation. She exhibits her silver work at various art markets, music and yoga festivals, and Renaissance fairs all over the northeast USA.
