Event Description

Enliven, Enhance & Entrap: Creative Stone Setting with John Cogswell

April 18-22, 2009 from 9 am - 5 pm $999 + $190 kit

Note: This class is currently full. We are taking names for the waitlist and we will inform you when a spot opens up.

For many contemporary jewelers, stone setting begins and ends with a basic bezel setting. If you are ready to move beyond the basics and wish to enlarge your repertoire of stone setting skills, take this class. In it you will watch and learn how to design, construct and set a variety of bezel, prong and graver settings. Discussion and demos cover real-life practical setting applications and considerations; how to prepare and use appropriate tools; construction tips and tricks; alternative setting methods; and creative design modification. We will keep your fingers busy.

Prerequisite: Fabrication 2 or experience.

John Cogswell will also teach Clasps X 3, April 23-24, 2011.


John Cogswell is a master goldsmith and master silversmith who teaches at SUNY New Paltz. As an expert in the field, John has been a technical consultant and contributing author for several contemporary jewelry texts. His work has been included in numerous exhibitions, publications and international public and private collections.
