Silver-Wear I - Jan & Keith Stephens
In this class students will recycle vintage Silver Plated flatware into beautiful “Silver-Wear” Jewelry. They will learn cold forming techniques, polishing, buffing, basic wire wrapping, texturizing, stamping, using patina, making simple cold connections and other metal working skills. The lab fee covers all materials for the required projects, consumable supplies and the use of specialized tools for the course. If desired, finer metals, gemstones and findings will be available at additional costs. The instructors will also have optional silverware pieces, tools and supplies available for purchase, at fair market prices, for completing extra projects at the school or at home. On Thursday and Friday, if required projects are complete, students will have the opportunity to develop their own unique designs using the skills they have learned during the week. At this time, students are allowed to bring to class their own collections of silverware, (either Sterling or Silver plate) or they can purchase additional silverware and supplies (Sterling or Silver Plate) from the instructors at fair market prices. Students may need to use vision magnification to see clearly. Otherwise, all you need to bring with you is creativity and imagination for this unique, fun-filled class. Note: In the event that you have already had Silver-Wear I, but the date for Silver-Wear II does not accommodate your needs, you may register for Silver-Wear I and the instructors will move you forward at your level with new and challenging projects.
