Come and learn how to make beautiful jewelry with an introduction to metalsmithing techniques! You will be guided the first day on basic techniques; how to solder, saw, file, hammer, make jump rings and findings. The next two sessions will be spent using your new skills to make bracelets, rings, earrings, and pendants. We will use stamps, set stones and learn wire wrapping, just to name a few examples of skills. Silver is available for a small additional fee. While this class is geared toward beginners, students with some previous experience will work on perfecting skills and learning new techniques. Class is limited to six students. Please bring reading glasses if you wear them.
