Week One (5-day): June 29 – July 3, 2020. Classes run 9 am – 4 pm daily and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.
Bring sparkle and texture to your jewellery work! First, you will learn to wrestle thick pieces of metal into smooth pleasing bands, and then learn to embellish them with the endlessly varied possibilities of “file work” – giving movement and dimension to the flat surfaces. Brighten up your results even further by adding to your repertoire the techniques of both flush setting and tube setting faceted stones in sterling silver.
Stones, burs, drills, and other tools are included in the materials kit along with sterling silver wire, sheet, and tubing.
