This two-day introductory workshop is perfect for those who have always wanted to learn traditional jewelry-making skills but never the time or studio space. Students will design and produce unique jewelry pieces while learning essential fabrication techniques including using a jeweler’s saw to cut metal, solder and anneal with a torch, and texture surfaces with hammers. Some time will be spent practicing on sample pieces, as well as applying these skills to making a textured ring, pendant, or pair of earrings. Instructor: Melanie D. Krauss.

Skill Level: All (Ages 16 – Adult)
Class Size: Minimum 4 / Maximum 8
