Expand your creative skills and learn to set stones in metal clay with Jeanette Landenwitch!

Ms. Landenwitch shows you step-by-step how-to (and how-not-to) set stones in metal clay. You'll learn a variety of techniques for setting stones and learn how to start creating your own focal pieces.

This is a CraftCast Vintage Video, created before it was possible to incorporate High Definition video, as we do today. How far we have come in such a short time!

Watch and listen as Jeanette reveals to you all the tips and techniques you need to know to start setting stones in metal clay. Using close-up photographs of each step of the process, plus Jeanette's detailed instruction, you’ll be creating using these techniques in no time!

Class was recorded live so, just like in more recent videos, you’ll hear the live Q&A with other students.
