Sam’s Simple Mount Workshop 10 remaining $485
August 25 & 26, 2018
In this workshop, we will make the three pendants shown here. The pendant on the left is completely handmade from the double half round, 24-gauge sheet and 8 half round for the bail. The rim is made for the outside of the pendant first, soldered onto a back plate which is then trimmed to the outside of the rim forming the pendant. The pendant is then squished in the hydraulic press, the mount soldered onto the center which has been domed from being squished.
The bail is soldered onto the outside of the rim, stone set and pendant finished.
The other two pendants are made using two of Kevin Potter’s compression dies. I will bring these two dies with me but the student may also buy their own from Potter USA. The student should make sure that the compression die will accommodate the SSM, I can check while I’m in Tucson if the students want to ask me before buying from Potter.
Focus on this workshop is on setting stones using the SSM.
