2018 November Titanium and Fused Argentium Bracelet by Robert Lopez Nov. 2,3,4
Titanium and Fused Argentium Bracelet by Robert Lopez Nov. 2,3,4
All workshops are in Long Beach,CA
Three day workshop focusing on heat treating titanium to obtain an attractive and durable crystalline structure. The heat treatment can achieve vibrant colors including gold, magenta, purples and blues.
We will also cover the benefits of working with tarnish resistant Argentium Sterling Silver. Argentium is a silver alloy that is whiter and brighter than traditional sterling and can be annealed softer and hardened beyond traditional sterling. We will be fusing Argentium silver granules and multiple gauges of wire to create a freeform and organic structure, enabling us to cut back on solder joints.
I will also instruct students on the process and benefits of constructing a thick wall bezel for setting a cabochon. The workshop will also cover texturing, soldering, riveting (joining silver to titanium) to form the finished cuff, patina, roller printing, forming and finishing.
