This class will meet on Saturday and Sunday, December 15 & 16, 2018. This is an excellent class if you have taken jewelry courses in the past and would like to further improve your skills. In this class we will practice piercing and overlay techniques as well as forming and finishing techniques to create a pair of matched earrings and a pendant. We will also cover design and project planning, saw tips and tricks, soldering techniques, texturing and finishing techniques. Students will learn best uses for tools including shears, drill press, flex shaft, rolling mill, dapping punches, leather sand bag, holding devices, pitch, resin, dop wax, and gravers.
Students should also bring your problems and questions to this class. We will talk about creative work arounds and time saving techniques that will improve your overall production.
