Fine silver wire was created by melting down silver coins. Chains are created by looping wires together on a dowel, then pulling the pieces through a draw plate to compress and reduce the size of the woven chain. You will create a bracelet out of copper, silver plate, or brass plate wire. You will also learn how to attach a toggle clasp to your finished bracelet. You may not finish your bracelet in class but will leave with the skills to complete your pieces at home.
