Silver I - Barbara Fields
Basic safety, and proper use of the tools and torch, will be covered on Sunday evening. We will then start with a bracelet on Monday that will be finished by lunch. Projects include: a closed back and an open back pendant, and a ring. After being able to conquer the basics, we can move on to some of my other projects, or work on the student’s own ideas. If you have your own cabochons, go ahead and bring them. The school supplies all the required tools, and I supply a variety of other items that will help make the class a success. I will have a variety of silver materials that should accommodate our projects for the week, and an assortment of cabochons for my students to buy if needed. Stones will be priced according to the type of material and the size, and silver will be based on the current market price and type of material. Total costs will depend on materials used in class or purchased for home use. There is a $75 fee that covers all the expendable items, (solder, flux, saw blades as well as the printed materials) along with a kit containing a solder pick, paint brushes for flux, wet/dry sandpaper, and other items for the student to keep.
