Dieter Setz is involved in the educational side of the Jewellery industry since 1982 when he was the training Master for Studio K in Johannesburg South Africa. In 1996 he was asked by the Jewellery Council of SA to look at the training of Jewellers on tertiary level. Dieter was the driving force behind the establishing of a national training syllabus and set on the development task team. In 2006 I started to experiment with different Palladium alloys and working techniques, hand and machine. Dieter is holding seminars in working with Palladium all over South Africa.
