The Process

The process involves a small ridge being produced within the seating of the stone. This is done by using a fine steel burnisher. The effect of this ridge is to secure the stone in place. The burnishing process is counter intuitive but once the process is explored with the aid of a binocular microscope, the principle can be quickly learned.

Each participant will set 4 x 3mm CZ stones in a copper strip in this 3 hour session, using a 1mm drill bit a bud bur, and 2 cone burs. These are supplied to each attendee to use and take home after the course. The participant will also be given a comprehensive e booklet covering all aspects of the flush setting session
If the Flush Setting booklet has been previously purchased from our website, the cost will be refunded against the cost of the 3 hour course
