Micro Torch - Artistic Wire and Stone
Thusdays from 9 am to 2 pm
Students begin by using our favorite wire bending tools to create lavish designs in heavy gauge sterling silver round wire. You will make several parts that will then be soldered together in an artistic arrangement. Practice your silver soldering techniques as you use your butane fueled torch to connect all the pieces including a prefabricated bezel cup to hold the beautiful semi-precious natural stone cab. Learn about the design aspects of using the line as the major element in your jewelry work.
This workshop is limited to five students so that individual attention can be given to each person.
