Spend a weekend in the Artisan’s Asylum jewelry studio learning to make several rings!! Starting with a simple soldered brass band ring, students will learn the basics of measuring, sawing and shaping your ring. Moving on to stacking rings, students will make three individual sterling silver rings with small soldered decorative elements.
The final ring will be a mixed metal “spinner” ring, which will include the use of hammers for texturing the metal.
Students will learn how to make good solder seams and the fundamentals of polishing with a buffing machine as well as other finishing options.
Students will leave the class with basic metalworking skills, a basic understanding of jewelry fabrication, and several rings of their own design.
Saturday and Sunday, 10/5/19 – 10/6/19
students will be provided with silver, brass, and consumable supplies. Students do not need to bring anything.
