Basic Jewelry Making Workshop

Getting that those simple earrings or stacker rings from your mind onto your body takes skill, and a torch. Don’t be intimidated by that powerful blue flame!

You will learn how to use a kitchen torch to solder rings and layered metals. Kitchen torches can be used to make balled silver head-pins (or rivets) and small silver balls. 

In this class we will work on a simple project, designed to help you feel more comfortable with a torch:  a simple set of three stacker rings of sterling silver & copper or a simple pair of dangle earrings, your choice. You will also learn how to make the rings or earring components, including ear wires. See what the possibilities are as we take our torches to metal in the creation of wearable art!

Materials are included in fee. Please include your phone # and email address in the "Special instructions for seller" section of the checkout when you register for the class and we will email or text (indicate preference please) the address of the class and any further instructions.

Class is capped at 3 students. Please bring a sack lunch, we will break to eat.
