Runs 6 Tuesdays - Note: Classes will be rescheduled as needed for bad weather.


Skill Level: Should have taken an Intro to Jewelry class or have a basic skill set, including soldering

$40 materials fee payable at the time of registration

Regular Workshop

This session will also be a combination of a taught project/technique and guidance on individual projects. The focus on new techniques will be continuing in the bracelet format, with a hollow bracelet with integral hinge and clasp. Learning to build a hinge that does not break the line of the bracelet by using pieces of tubing on the outer surface is a very useful skill to have, as in integrating the clasp into the bracelet without interrupting the flow of design.

And as in previous sessions, bring your intermediate to advanced projects that you've always wanted to build but weren't quite sure how to begin, and we will teach you what you need to know. The photos show some of the work we have done in our classes. Of course, your piece will be different and exciting!
