5 days, 5 pieces, 10 techniques. Fast and fun, this class focuses on simple techniques that combine to create rich and interesting jewelry pieces. We begin with earrings and pendants and end with a brooch and maybe even a ring. You don’t have to be a master jeweler to make beautiful, wearable jewelry. Learn how to deal with those edges, where to place a pin back, how to add texture, and so much more. All levels welcome but should know how to saw, file, and solder if you really want to make 5 pieces.
April 2nd - 6th, 2019 (Arrive April 1st & Depart April 7th)

Add interest to your jewelry designs with surface texture, volume, and layers. Emphasis is placed on planning and finishing techniques in order to achieve a more professional look. You will learn easy soldering and riveting tips, how to incorporate found materials or beads, how to create a rich surface on copper and silver, and how to use commercial findings or make your own. Leave with several finished pieces including a brooch. This class is perfect for preparing to take the Drawing on Metal class. All levels welcome.
