About The Workshop
We offered this workshop during Artown and it was a hit, so we are excited to bring back Mandi Wirtanen for this encore.
There are so many things you can do with metal when it comes to making jewelry! In this class we will learn how to use a simple jewelers saw, solder, hand stamping and texturing. You will create your very own Sterling Silver pendant, ring, or bracelet. The jeweler's saw is one of the most important tools for jewelry making. You will learn how to properly thread your saw blades and how to effectively cut metal to create uniquely shaped components for your jewelry designs. You will also get to hand stamp letters, numbers or designs into your metal or choose from a variety of embellishments to solder onto your piece and use a mix of other metals such as copper or 14k gold filled. We will also go over files and sandpaper to polish out the rough edges and different tools to create holes in our pieces to suspend from a necklace, bracelet, or earrings.
All supplies are included in the class fee. Additional supplies are available for purchase. This is a 4.5-hour workshop. Bring a snack and water, we will take a short break. Ages 15+ Pre-registration required.
