  • Stone & Metal

Are you passionate about gemstones but frustrated that all the stones you see are cut in shapes that don’t fit your work? Are you tired of the same old oval cabs and round brilliants? Are you ready to take control of your own designs? Take this inspirational workshop and learn how to design using stone as a medium and not an accessory! Watch step-by-step demos on how to cut and polish basic forms and shapes (other than ovals) in stone, as well as how to pierce, drill, and rivet stones with metal. Learn how to carve grooves, laminate stones, layer stone and
metal, and much more. Open to all levels.

Michael Boyd will also teach Gem Carving at the Bench.

Stone & Metal

Michael Boyd is a unique metal and stone artist who has mastered both media and brought them together in new ways. Michael’s work is highly respected and has been shown at top galleries and exhibitions, including SOFA and the Museum of Art and Design (formerly the American Craft Museum).
