About The Workshop
This introductory Silver Smithing Workshop is perfect for anyone who wants to learn the fundamental skills involved in making handmade jewelry. From beginner to advanced, you will grow knowledge and develop skills to create one-of-a-kind Art Jewelry. We will be working in Sterling Silver and each student will be guided through the step-by-step process of making a pendant. Skills covered will include sawing, shaping, filing, hammered textures, soldering with a torch and bezel setting a cabochon stone. This exciting interactive class includes many demonstrations and lots of hands-on work, but you will be taking home a finished, handmade pendant. All supplies are included and tools will be provided by your instructor for use in class. Additional metal, stones and tool kits are available for purchase after the class. This is a six hour workshop with an hour break for lunch.
