About This Class

A second tube set ring class - with a twist! This class uses the stone setting techniques taught in the Tube Set Ring video to create a bypass ring, a stone set between two sides of a ring shank that twist past each other.

I always like to include a bit of troubleshooting in my video classes - after all, things don't always go to plan when you're making jewellery so it's good to know how to put things right! In this case I've deliberately chosen a stone for the design that doesn't match the sizes of burrs that I have. Ideally your burrs should be the same size as the stone you are setting, but by following my tips you'll be able to see a way round this!

If you haven't already taken the Tube Set Ring video class I do recommend that you watch it before starting this new class as it covers technical information about the stones, tubes and burrs that tube setting uses.

The Ocean Blue Ring class continues with series of Intermediate Silversmithing classes. As you progress through the series I will help you build on the skills covered in the Silversmithing for Beginners series, encouraging you to create more complex projects. I will always take you through everything you need step by step, and include troubleshooting sections where appropriate too. We will be covering soldering, various methods of stone setting, etching and more!

The Ocean Blue Ring was designed as part of the Ring A Month 2019 challenge. August's prompt was Under The Sea. For more about the challenge visit www.facebook.com/groups/makearingamonth/
