The Path is Pavé
work by Todd Daniels

Stone setting isn't a skill taught at just any building around the corner. Few learning facilities exist and only a handful of people in the United States are skilled enough to teach advanced techniques.

This is part of what makes an advanced stone setting class at the GRS Training Center so special. Todd Daniels, a master at stone setting and hand engraving, finished teaching a 5-day Advanced Micro-Pavé course.

Here you can see just a few examples of his stunning (and accurate) stone setting work. This is the type of stone setting Daniels shared with his students during the week. David Burt of Alberta, Canada, came all the way down to Kansas to learn from Daniels. "The instructor was top both, materials relevant, and the demonstrations were clear and concise," noted Burt at the end of class.

Another student, Jeremy Lepak of Wisconsin, commented that the class was, "...the best way to elevate my skills in stone setting. It is probably the only course of its kind in the U.S." These students are definitely paving a path to success with this course!
