Learn how to construct a set of jewelry using non-ferrous and precious metals such as copper, brass and silver. Students will create a one-of-a-kind set of jewelry using gemstones, found objects or precious keepsakes. Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of designing and fabricating a cohesive line of jewelry including a pendant, earrings, ring, and bracelet. A knowledgeable instructor will introduce tools and techniques to create unique surface textures that will lead to dynamically layered pieces. Students will also learn the basics of soldering, piercing, texturing, stamping, light forging, roll pressing, stone setting, patina and finishing. No prior metal-smithing skills are necessary. Metal will be provided for practice and exercises, but students may need to pay for additional metals needed for their independent work.
