Stone Setting, Carving & Casting Workshop

Spend 2 creative days with Yvette and learn to make your own wax carved ring or pendant model that will be outsourced & cast in sterling silver or metal of your choice. You will then set a cabochon stone into the cast piece you have created.




This is an advanced workshop where you will need previous knowledge of silver jewellery making. It is held on 2 days over 2 different weeks. You will improve on your previous silver-smithing techniques such as: sawing, annealing, soldering, forming, texturing, polishing and learn new skills with stone setting, wax carving and cleaning up a casting.


Workshops are held in my home studio in Tarrawanna. The address will be sent to you via email once you make your booking. Snacks, tea, coffee & water is provided.

Cost is $230 AUD per person for the 2 days. This will include an information pack, some consumables, a small amount of silver, the use of my tools and equipment and my knowledge and assistance.

Additional fees will be charged for the cast ring, approximately $45. You can purchase a cabochon stone during class (approximately $15 - $20) or feel free to shop online for a CABOCHON STONE ONLY and bring it to class. A minimum stone size of 10mm round or oval is required.

Each workshop class has no more than 5 - 6 students, ensuring the teaching time is very much one on one. There is a minimum requirement of 3 students, before a workshop will proceed.
