Students will work with a 1" x 1” square piece of sterling silver to construct a pendant, charm (or very special ornament!). This class covers design transfer, hand sawing, use of drill, marriage of metals and soldering. A great introduction to jewelry fabrication for all levels welcome. The use of crushed stone inlay will be demonstrated on how to add color to your piece without the difficultly of stone setting itself. A mixture of powdered stones and chips from turquoise, malachite, lapis lazuli, coral and black onyx will be set and sanded flush within the design that has been cut out in your pendant. Only materials provided will be allowed to use. Total class time is 8 hours.
Fee: 4-day workshop is FREE to high school students, with a $25 materials fee.
