This studio course is for students who would like to design and create jewelry in sterling and fine silver. Basic metal working and soldering skills will be practiced by making a ring set with a stone. Students will then design and fabricate a personal project, based on traditional or modern applications of the media. Soldering, stone setting, metal construction and forming, piercing, finishing and polishing will be covered. Students can expect to complete at least two finished pieces of jewelry. Individual instruction will be given. No previous design or metal experience required.
