String Bead is excited to be teaching how to make these trendy stackable rings! Instruction on how to make 5 different types of stackable rings. We will be pairing our soldering skills with our design skills to create this timeless, delicate project. We will be using bronze, copper, and sterling. Choose which types of rings best suit your style and maybe, time permitting, make up to five, a plain ring, a hammered ring, You will get a shot at a tube setting a 3mm and a 4mm CZ, and the how- to's on how to make your own tube settings. Then learn how to properly solder a twisted wire ring. And if you still have time, turn your plain ring into a balled and stamped ring! We will not be covering all the rules of soldering (that's the Beginning Soldering class) but if you have had any torch soldering experience you will do fine! All tools are provided. Your seat in the class is secured when the class is paid for.
