A bezel is a thin band of metal, which holds a stone or object like wood or plastic onto a piece of jewelry. Proper forming, fitting and soldering will be demonstrated. Students may expect to fabricate at least one or two bezels and set something into them. Students may bring their own materials to be set including cabochon stones, wood, plastic, tile fragments, etc. Inexpensive cabochons are available for purchase from the instructor.
The Art League Jewelry and Metal program covers various aspects of designing and creating art jewelry and small metal objects. Each class is suited for beginners, unless noted. The classroom is equipped with an extensive assortment of tools and machines. Personal tools and supplies are discussed during the first class. A $20 lab fee is payable to the instructor at the first class to cover consumables. Basic jewelry tool kits may be rented or purchased for home use for the duration of any jewelry class.
