My trademark piece that I wear every day is a thick silver bracelet. I’ve only shared this class with one other group, it's never been in a magazine or in a DVD. Students will learn silver etching, a huge soldering tip, cuff bracelet construction, and how to do a high polish. Bring your own designs, or Lexi will furnish Celtic, Native American and Arts and Craft style bracelet patterns.
Cost: $125 current BoMA members/$145 for non-members
Materials kit: $95 (depending on price of silver)
