Class 3: "Sweetheart" Sterling Silver and Garnet Earrings
In this informative three-hour class students will create a pair of earrings from sterling silver sheet metal, wire, and garnets (other stone colors may be used by availability and slight price change). You will texture the silver using stamps and hammers, as shown, or your own pattern. Techniques learned will be: stamping, soldering, filing, sanding, drilling, selecting and wiring briolettes, setting small cabochons, making attached earwires, antique patina, and polishing. All materials included in fee and some tools will be available in class. Students will be required to bring a butane torch (which can be purchased at Lowes or Home Depot), butane, basic jewelry tools, metal ruler, chasing hammer and bench block. Some of these items can be purchased at the store if needed. Space is VERY limited so act fast if you want to attend. Class fee must be paid in advance to reserve a spot. Tons of great information to learn in this class!
