Silver III Channel Inlay - David Wayment
Channel Inlay combines a soldered silver grid with carefully fitted, shaped pieces of stone. Students will fabricate a silver grid of their own design or use provided patterns to create pins, pendants, bolo ties, or belt buckles. Stones of similar hardness will be used in the projects. Combining silver and lapidary techniques makes this a challenging class. Lapidary skills are helpful but not required. Students should bring their own silver tools and assortment of slabs. Optivisor or other magnification is strongly recommended. Lab fee covers a solder brick. Solder, flux, stamp pad, epoxy, an extra-long solder pick, handouts and patterns. Silver and slabs will be available for purchase. If you have any questions about the course, you can contact David at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
