Fascination with Fancies
Tom Weishaar CMBJ
Saturday April 26th & Sunday April 27th
Let’s face it – setting a round diamond is boring, but a two-carat princess cut might cause your blood to flow a bit faster. How would you go about bezel setting a near flawless emerald or a ten carat black opal? Stones like those will certainly get a bench jeweler’s attention. This seminar can help you learn the secrets of setting unusually shaped, rare and fragile gemstones. This seminar discusses advanced setting techniques including setting Marquise and Pear Shaped stones, Princess Cuts, Bezel Setting and Odd Shaped Colored Stones.
This seminar sponsored by Jewelers of America, is part of the program at the Bench Jewelers Conference & Expo, April 24 – 27, 2008 in Los Angeles. For details on all the seminars offered, more conference & expo information, and to register go to: www.BenchConference.com.
