Art Of Silversmithing - last one of the season Sunday June 9
Cost $125 (includes all materials except the stone. We have stones available to purchase. If you bring your own stone there may be a slight up charge for metal if its a larger stone.)
Instructor: Dave Young and Mandi Wirtanen
This workshop will teach you how to highlight your favorite stone by placing it front and center in a handmade bezel set Pendant. With the combination of Dave’s 40 years being a jeweler and Mandi’s mixed metal jewelry background you will learn basic artistic practices for Silversmithing such as how to cut, solder, shape a sterling silver bezel and securely attach a handmade back-plate to your bezel, followed by filing and finishing your piece. Mastering these simple techniques is the beginning of designing high quality artist jewelry and you take home a beautiful pendant that showcases your new skills!
