This beginning level jewelry class will provide a solid foundation of metal, tools, techniques, and safety. We will make approximately 3-4 pieces of jewelry over the 6 weeks with the final project being a cabochon ring. Design ideas will be provided or students are free to create their own.

The following techniques will be covered: *sawing *polishing *soldering *sanding/filing *piercing *texturing *patinas *ring sizing and making *forming *stamping *bezel setting *making ear wires The following tools will be covered: *flex shaft *disc cutter *rolling mill *dapping block *hydraulic press *soldering torch You will receive a manual with all the techniques and step by step instructions to go along with the class. 10 hours of studio time are provided with this class. Studio time must be used within 90 days of the last class. Make sure you purchase your supplies prior to the start of class. See link above to the materials list. PREREQUISITES: None Please Note: Beginning Jewelry covers the fundamentals of metalsmithing. Each class builds on the week before so missing a class can be challenging. In particular, missing week 3 which covers the soldering foundation will set you behind. Your options to make up a class are: 1. Make it up with another beginning jewelry class, although you may have to wait for a while depending on the schedule. 2. Schedule and pay for an hour private lesson.
