Master the art and craft of stonesetting

Learn the most cutting-edge stonesetting techniques and treatments used by today's contemporary jewelry makers. Clear step-by-step illustrations combined with concise instructions and practical advice make this book an invaluable reference for professional jewelry makers, students, and Etsy sellers.

No other book currently available focuses on the use and application of ready-made settings, which are most commonly used by jewelers today. Stonesetting not only shows you how to use and incorporate these settings into existing designs but also teaches you how to make settings from scratch. Also included is an overview of tools and materials, accompanied by an in-depth guide to choosing and evaluating a variety of stones. The second part covers the range of settings available—from bezel to prong to snap settings—and uses step-by-step instructions explaining how to set cabochons, faceted stones, and other variants. A handy section in the back contains care, maintenance, and repair advice, plus a gallery of gorgeous finished pieces.

Stonesetting for Contemporary Jewelry Makers combines everything you need to know about this specialized craft all in one place, making this an indispensible reference for beginners and professionals alike.
