Courses will provide the student with general knowledge of tips and tricks of the trade for stone setting with Swarovski flat back crystals as well as hands on training with the owners supervision. Do not expect to become a professional stone setter using Swarovski crystals by just attending the beginner course or even completing all the courses of training for this would be a false promise from any educational institution. Our programs will give you a good foundation to understand and perform many of the tasks that you may be presented with when working in the Swarovski flat back stone setting industry. Becoming a professional flat back stone setter requires extensive training and practice like any other trade or profession. We do extensive hands on training with our students to assure they meet all requirements but we highly recommend practicing on your own as much as possible.
