Rock & Ring - Cut a Cabachon & Make the Setting

Yearning for a taste of rock cutting AND jewelry making?

Two of Schack's favorite teachers are serving up a collaborative class for you to cut your own cabochon stone (with Art Cass) and create a custom sterling silver setting for your gem (with Julia Lowther). 

You'll love this class so much we'll have to shoo you out of the jewelry studio when the class is over!

(Making a lucky someone a ring for Christmas? Measure the destination finger in advance with a strip of paper or a piece of string, and bring that to class, OR bring a ring that you know fits the finger in question.) 

All materials and tools provide.  Bring nothing - go home with new jewelry.  Beginners welcomed with open arms!
