SilverSmithing I - Beverly Fox
This class is designed to challenge and fast track the serious beginning student, while having fun. The techniques, knowledge and skills learned in this class will be a great foundation, giving you the confidence to create any design you can think up. In five days, you will make a ring with a stone, a pendant with a stone and a chain with a hand-made clasp. We will be working in both fine silver and sterling silver. You will learn the properties of different metals and their best uses. There are basic tools of the trade (which we will be using), but there are so many more tools! Learn why some are better than others. Handouts will be provided elaborating on all the basic techniques.
