Student Feedback
I knew the basic concepts of (diamond) mounting, so it was really good to learn the tips and tricks of the trade and learn how to make a setting for an unusual or irregular shaped stone.
 
I knew a day wouldn’t be a long time on this, years of practice is required, but I have a good base now and more confidence to attempt the designs I had in mind before the course.
