Tube Setting Masterclass
Sat 27th April 2024

Level: Intermediate – Students will be working on a very small scale so hand/eye coordination and patience are a must for this session.

Join us for a Tube Setting Masterclass and add this sleek and contemporary round stone setting technique to your silver jewellery-making repertoire.

Tube setting is the technique whereby a round stone is set into a piece of tube so that the stone is prominently, yet cleanly displayed on a ring or pendant. This one-day workshop provides an exciting opportunity to grasp the principal and practical application of tube settings.

You will practice in copper, setting different-sized cubic zirconia stones, and once confident move on to work in silver. With the guidance of the tutor you will then tube-set a small silver pendant with a semi-precious stone

Techniques covered:

  • Choosing the correct stones for tube setting
  • How to correctly drill and burr a recess in the tube to fit your stone
  • Pushing the metal around the stone to hold it in place permanently

What to bring:

  • We’ll provide all the things you will need for your Tube Setting Ring Masterclass however you are welcome to bring your own 5mm stones (we will be providing a selection to choose from).
  • A sketch/notebook plus a pen/pencil for notes could come in handy for this workshop
  • Please bring along glasses and/or a visor if you need them
  • Wear appropriate clothing for a studio environment including closed-toe shoes. Why not order yourself a CSSJ apron to make you feel right at home in your workshop?
  • Tea, coffee, and biscuits are provided
