This is an online, 4 hour introductory workshop to cabochon/stone setting. Your tutor, Nadja, from Imbali Crafts will show you everything you need to know to learn the basics of how to set cabochons using wire. Some of the topics covered are as follows: (Disclaimer: you may be hooked on weaving after :) )

  • How to work neatly and control the wire
  • Nifty tips & hacks to help you create beautiful jewellery with ease

  • How to create your own findings such as clasps, earring wires, jump rings etc...
  • We'll cover 2  cabochon setting techniques for pendants and if time permits a hand made chain

We always have a lot of fun together! Be sure to bring your favourite brew or whatever else you enjoy, and come and join us for a crafty few hours!
