In this 6 week evening, 3 hr class, students are introduced to the skills, secrets and techniques of making jewelry. No experience is required except passion and enthusiasm. We begin with the basics of surveying tools used in jewelry making. From saw frames to solder picks, each week we explore a new technique for your tool arsenal. Using a sawframe, we will pierce a letter or number from copper. Moving onto the rolling mill, we learn embossing metal using various textures. Employing a "cold connect" or using small rivets will be demonstrated. Moving onto soldering, you will learn how to connect metal to metal and when to use different solders. Lastly, students will have the skills to solder a ring or make a pendant with a set stone.
