About the event

February 18-20, 2022  - 9am-5pm

Learn how to completely hand-fabricate your jewelry in sterling silver with gold accents by making a ring. Students prepare a charcoal block and melt down gold shot to make an ingot. Roll out your gold for a variety of purposes that include; Bezel and design accents to create a ring with a gold bezel set stone. Learn to solder gold to gold and gold to silver. Students begin with 18k gold shot and sterling silver flat wide ring stock. The base of the ring, flat sterling wire, is modified for your project needs including; rolling, cutting, measuring and adding ornamentation. The skills learned here allow you to reuse scrap and mill your own metals…which comes in handy when you start a project late on a Friday night and there’s no time to order what you need.  For the purpose of this class we will be using clean material.

This workshop is limited to 8 students.
