An intensive one-session workshop for those who would like to dive into the world of jewelry soldering. We will begin by reviewing the components of a jewelry soldering setup and torch safety. Next you’ll practice soldering, working your way from simple wire joints used in jump rings and chains to longer seams in sheet metal, such as those in wide ring bands. We’ll end the class with a wire-balling exercise, teaching you to make your own elegant silver earwires. The course fee includes all silver, brass, solder, and other materials used in this class.
Maximum class size is 4 students.
