Pop-up Jewelry Class: Beginner's Bezel Boogie: $80


This class is part two of our beginning soldering classes and an introduction to stone setting. In class, we will be creating a bezel set pendant. You'll learn how to butt solder, create your own bezel strip, measure a stone, use a bezel punch, learn how to secure your work for setting, how to create and solder on a bail and a lot of other cool stuff! We will be busy, busy, busy - ergo the class name! 

If all goes well and we don't run out of time, you could walk out of class with a fabulous cabochon pendant - just in time to give it away to someone you love! (Hint: Holiday season) 

You should have at least some prior soldering experience. This is a beginner 2.0 soldering class (i.e.: you have limited experience but, are busting to learn more!). Students from Chimera's beginning soldering class, this is your next step! 

If anyone took Sugar's sawing class, you can solder your bezel to your butterfly! See my images.

Instructor will supply the class kit with all materials, including a 30mm X 22mm cabochon and sterling silver. Price of the kit depends on the amount of material you use and the stone type you choose. Kit will be at least $10.00 and may be more. Contact me (private message on FB: if you want to bring your own materials. Cash only, purty please.

No lunch break, as this is an intensive 4 hour workshop. Lots to do in a small window of time so, plan to either bringing lunch (and eat it quickly, at Chimera) or dine afterwards. There are many restaurants within walking distance.
