40-hour jewelry workshop with scott

Scott, from Oregon, recently completed a 40-hour workshop with me in the jewelry studio. He has had many years of experience creating jewelry on his own, but wanted to learn a few new techniques and hone others that he is already familiar with. This isn’t his first time coming to Florence; he has also studied under Ken Scott, a New Zealand jeweler/sculptor.

Over a couple of weeks, he was able to complete several projects including a stone-inlay pendant in sterling silver and coral forming a fleur de lis (the symbol for Florence) seen below. This process involves piercing and sawing a design in a 1mm sheet of sterling silver to frame the stone, soldering it to a back layer, inserting the crushed stone, filing, and finishing.

He also made a sterling silver and gold-fill ring with a lapis lazuli cabochon bezel setting, a convex ring in sterling silver with 3 faceted stones in step-bezels, a man’s sterling silver bracelet with the contour of Portugal, and the beginnings of another sterling silver ring.
