Regular price $465.00
TITLE: Embellishing Jewelry with Handmade Prong Settings
Dates: March 15,16,17 Friday-Sunday
Through fabrication methods and proper soldering techniques, students will learn how create a wire prong setting to trap objects in their jewelry. We’ll also learn a variety of soldering techniques (such as sheet & wire applique, open filigree wire work, and simple kinetics) which will help students add surprising and delightful details to their work. Many other short cuts, tips & tricks, and techniques will be covered as we go along! Soldering small to large components will be a major part of this class. Students should be prepared with ideas of jewelry designs they want to complete or the instructor can give assignments.
Please note: We will only be using a torch with two gases in this class, such as the Smith Little Torch of the Meco torch. Be prepared to have a mind-blowing experience time working with this tool!
