Jewellery - Cabochon Stone Setting

About the course

This 3 week short course is ideal for those who already have fundamental jewellery techniques and want to expand on them.

We will bring them to the next level through weekly hands-on tutorials and demonstrations.

What will I study?

Learner hours: 16.5

You will be learning how to create a bezel setting for a round stone, when to apply different solders, setting a stone, polishing and finishing techniques. Finally, leaving home with a silver ring with a cabochon stone setting.

It is necessary to have attended a basic jewellery techniques course before enrolling onto this course. You will have the knowledge of how to make rings and set cabochon stones of your own if you want to continue making jewellery. Once you have acquired the skills it is possible to set up your own jewellery studio at home and continue practicing!

Booking deadlines

Bookings for all Creative Arts Short Courses will be reviewed two weeks before the start date of each course. This will allow the Short Course team to determine whether a course has met the minimum number of students needed for the class to run. If a class has failed to recruit, the class will be re-scheduled and you will be informed. Where relevant you will be offered an alternative class. If the course has met minimum numbers, bookings will stay open to the course start date or until it has met maximum numbers.

We encourage you to book early before the deadline to avoid disappointment.

Bookings for all short courses need to be made online through our online booking system, before a course commences. You cannot enroll or attend a class on the day the course starts, without prior arrangement.


If for any reason you change your mind about joining us after you have accepted the offer, you have a legal right to cancel your contract to study with us within 14 days. This cancellation period therefore ends at the end of 14 days after the day on which you accepted our offer. Find further details of our cancellation terms here.
