Tab Set Pendants

Tab Setting, also known as Turtle Setting, is an easy way to set a stone without using traditional soldering techniques. Instructor Aisha Formanski will walk you through how to saw out your metal setting, add design elements to make your piece truly unique, and to set the stone using unconventional tools. Pull out those stone cabochons you purchased at the last bead show, and lets get started!

This class has a run time of 29 minutes.

Aisha is clear, concise and has a wonderful speaking voice while teaching this class. I do make soldered bezel pendants, however had wanted to experiment with negative space on the backs of my bezels for a new and interesting look when setting cabochons! She makes designing, sawing and setting stones so very simple and quite beautiful. Thank you Beaducation, for providing the best informative classes ever!

I really appreciated Aisha's Tab Setting video.
So well paced and each step was well articulated, AND I the great tips that Aisha provided along the way...like "sawing on the inside of the pendant line", and on the "outside of the tab line", along with "keep sawing while you turn the metal". (how many times have I snapped blades by not following that advice!)
Also, to cover your sharpie saw lines with packing tape! Thank you!
I really enjoy Beaducation videos!
Cheers.

Very easy to understand and follow along. Easy to see pictures/video. Clear instructions as well as some troubleshooting tips. I can't wait to try this technique after I practice sawing shapes. Aisha makes it all look so easy. Thank you so much for all your help.
