Metalsmithing 01 Introduction to Jewelry Design and Creation WORKSHOP FULL
An in–depth look at learning the basics of fabricated sterling silver jewelry design. Students become familiarized with all of the essential techniques, including sawing, cutting, filing, stamping, texturing, basic roller embossing, forming, finishing & polishing, as well as the opportunity to work with bezel stone setting, wire, fusing, soldering, and patinas. The first session is spent learning the basic property of metal and the inter-related steps as to how design ideas are created into unique items of adornment. The last three sessions are dedicated to applying that knowledge to making one or more pieces of jewelry of the students' own design.
The 4 session workshop is designed for each student to experience taking a concept and then following through to a finished creation.
Note: Students will need to purchase approximately $70 in tools. Class is limited to 6 students.
