Zac Tedrow | Fit for Royalty: castellated and carved bezels | Tuesday, February 6, 2024 | 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm and 6 pm – 9 pm


Bezel setting is a popular way to capture a stone or object as a centerpiece in jewelry.

In this class, students will use sawing, filing and carving techniques to create unique and eye catching castellated bezels.

Just as the name suggests, these regularly spaced notches emulate the decorative parapets on top of a castle!

After creating their detailed bezel settings, students will attach them to a split shank ring design and set a stone of their choosing.

Come and learn how to elevate your bezels to make jewelry fit for royalty!
