Dancing with Fire:
prongs, prongs, PRONGS!
Metals Week by Vivi Magoo Presents
Urban Metals Studio
In this five day workshop intensive, we will explore the many facets of my unconventional, and now signature, approach to prong setting.
We will start with using unusual techniques to grasp a cabochon (or two or three) for a dramatic necklace, incorporating silver organic elements for texture and intrigue, experimenting with simple hinges to add movement, and discussing the importance of making your own chain and findings.
we will move on to a smaller scale of prong setting earrings (also incorporating movement), then even smaller to explore a variety of prong set styles for rings, some cabochon, some faceted.

an organic approach to prong setting
Shake Rag Alley
Mineral Point, WI
In this two-day workshop, we will explore my unconventional, and signature, approach to prong setting, using unusual techniques to grasp a stone (or two or three) for a dramatic necklace. We will incorporate silver organic elements for texture and intrigue, experiment with simple hinges to add movement, and discuss the importance of making your own chain and findings, while learning those options. Be prepared to experiment. To tell stories. To laugh at my silly jokes. Be prepared to play with fire!
