Joel McFadden uses his 3 step approach to diamond setting techniques. In class, students will set 2mm CZs in custom cast silver rings using burs, gravers and beading tools with the latest microscopes and engraving systems.
Day 1 focuses on Bead Setting. Students will learn fundamental techniques for Bead Setting diamonds and stones of all sizes in rings.
Day 2 focuses on Fishtail Setting. Building on bead setting techniques, students learn how to make stones “pop” with more advanced setting methods.
Precision Bench teaches with EnSet engraving systems, Foredom flex-shafts and Leica microscopes. Students who would like to learn with
other systems need to coordinate with us in advance to ensure compatibility with the class.
