    Open Back Pendant Setting (*New Longer Time*)
    Wednesday, January 27th, 5pm-9pm
    $95/Member, Max 4
    This is an alternative setting that can be used for a cabochon stone. This kind of setting will be ideal for larger stones that you might not want to cover the back with silver. You will build a setting that allows you to see more of your stone than a traditional bezel setting. You will be challenged but excited at the possibilities! Please bring your own cabochon to set (There will be options available as well for purchase.)
    Please email Adam to register: merkury.metals@gmail.com
