Micropavé - EVGAD new capability
EVGAD is reinvesting sales growth into new skills development, studying with the world famous micro-stonesetter & jewellery tool designer Jura.
The week long intensive Micropavé* course was at Jura's workshop in the Netherlands.
The course covered several kinds of setting techniques and how to use tools designed for Micropavé process.
EVGAD has also purchased a number of Jura's bespoke tools to help create technically challenging jewellery requiring micro-stone setting skills.
