We will start with learning how to saw shapes and designs. Next students will learn basic soldering techniques to produce a simple silver ring. Second, students will learn to texture using the rolling mill, with different metals and finishes. We will then take these pieces and use cold connections (rivets) to fabricate them into a pendant.
Students will be introduced to the basics of stone setting and will be provided with one cabochon and bezel of their choice. We will then work on several projects (of your choosing) to hone your soldering technique.
This class will prepare you for working independently in the Artisan Asylum’s studio space. Each session will provide a lesson or demo and hands on work time.
Students will come away with familiarity of basic jewelry making skills:
Gas Tank Operation
Project Goals: Students will complete a simple sterling ring, a riveting project, and a finished piece of jewelry with a bezel-set cabochon.
A materials fee of $45 included in the price of the class – covers the cost of metals, a cabochon gemstone, and consumables such as saw blades, drill bits, and solder.
This class runs for 6 Thursdays starting March 7 @ 11AM
