Stone Setting Course Details
The tutor John Russel has been a professional stone setter all his life and he is now in his sixties. He has lectured at the University of Central England in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter. He is an excellent teacher and all our previous students have enjoyed their course with him. He continues to be a setter in demand in the Birmingham jewellery quarter.

This intensive course covers many different types of settings all to be taken at each individual students pace. Students will use an electric pendant motor in addition to hand tools such as gravers and scorpers.

On our course many different types of settings are acheived. These include - different types of claw settings, channel set, rub over and star settings that may be carried through to pave. Other settings may be acheived if students have any particular setting you wish to learn that has not been mentioned.

The casting mounts used for your stone setting projects together with the stones are not included in the course fee. The cost of the silver mounts and CZ stones are payable to the lecturer during the course, depending on how many and what type of mounts you will use. These are then yours to take home.


Students who have their own gravers and scorpers are asked to bring them with them. For students who do not have these tools, they are available to buy from John during the course. Gravers and scorpers are available to borrow for the course. The course may be either a 4 or 5 day duration, please check with the availbility sheet.
