Gerry Lewy has been setting diamonds for 54 years, a trade he learned in Toronto, Canada.  His forte is bead-setting (a.k.a. pave or bright cutting), and he has achieved his excellence by using his assortment of 'modified' gravers, two Onglette & one Flat graver.

Gerry has spent the last two decades sharing his expertise and teaching thousands of students throughout Canada and the United States, travelling everywhere from colleges and crafts schools, to individual stores with workshops. His latest success is producing an hour-long video on "Channel Setting."  He is currently undertaking another on bead-setting.

His direct 'one-on-one' communication to the student is very important. With Gerry's proven curriculum in bead-setting, the private or small class can fully better understand all the nuances of gemstone setting. 


 In May of 2013, Gerry was awarded a Guinness World Record in creating a piece of usable jewelry.
