Prepare to be adorned! In this beginning course you will learn the fundamentals of the design and creation of handcrafted jewelry, and how to work lavishly within a budget. Beginning with a series of sterling silver rings, you will learn how to size, texture, chase/stamp, file, form, silver solder with an acetylene torch, saw, pierce, drill, oxidize, hand-polish, high-polish with a buffing machine, and follow safe studio practices. You will also fabricate a bezel cup and set a cabochon stone. Sterling silver, fine silver, copper, brass and semi-precious stones will be used. Local supply sources and discounts through Diener Studio will be addressed. Note: A $115 materials fee, cash or check, will be collected at the first class. This class is limited to five students.
