Always wanted to make jewelry, but didn’t know where to start? Want to up your game but are afraid of the torch? This class is for you! This class will take the mystery out of silver smithing and get you started making jewelry.

 In this class you will learn all about silver soldering.  We will discuss flux, pickle, solders, torches and the 5 Points of soldering.  In this “technique” class, you will solder a butt joint and a ‘T’ joint. Learn how to pick a cabochon and how to set it, as well as some texturing and finishing techniques.  This class will remove the mystery of silver soldering and allow you to broaden your jewelry making skills. At the end of the class, you will take home your very own pendant, like the one pictured above. 

A materials fee of $45 covers the cost for your beginner silver smithing kit (including a cabochon), and any other materials used in this course. 

**Closed-toe shoes are required**
