What we're about

My name is Chad Parker, and I've been making sterling jewelry for about 25 years, and teaching people how to make it since 2003. I have three levels of classes, beginning, intermediate, and advanced. The classes meet for 4 hours, once per week, and go for 5 weeks. In the beginning class, students create 5 projects, 3 different rings, and two substantially different styles of pendant. The skills taught include, hard silver soldering, bezel setting of stones, shaping and cutting silver, polishing, and jewelry design. Students who complete the beginner class have all the skills to go out on their own and start producing products on their own. The intermediate students make a bracelet, a wide band ring, and a third project of their choosing, while the advanced class focuses on skills like setting faceted stones, both bezel and prong settings, hinges, spinner rings, and other advanced techniques. If you've been wanting to learn to do this, just like trying new things, or this is the next logical step in your jewelry making skills, you should try it!

Wednesday Evening Beginning Silversmithing

Loveland

$275.00

Hello all. I am getting ready to increase the number of classes I am teaching. The next class I would like to start will be a Wednesday night Beginner's Class. It will begin on Wednesday, June 5th. This is a great class if you have always wanted to learn to silver solder jewelry, or if you just want to brush up on long unused skills. In the class, I focus on getting you the basics of soldering which is the key to doing this well. To do this, you create 5 projects over 5 weeks. The first two projects are simple bands to learn some basics, followed by a bezel-set stone pendant ring with a bezel-set stone, and a larger different style pendant. The materials are included in the class fee. The price is $275. I request that you provide me a $50 deposit to hold your spot. If you would like to join, please message me directly. I cap the class at 6 people, so I really need a formal contact rather than just an RSVP. I also have a couple of openings in ongoing classes on Tuesday and Thursday evenings:)
