Skill Level: All
Yes, you can make rings! In this class, you will be guided through the process of determining the length of metal needed to produce a particular ring size including for a ring that will be textured after soldering. Using various styles of silver wire, you will create three different rings in the same size, to be worn as a set. As time allows, you will add a small cabochon in a pre-made setting to one of the rings. All steps will be carefully demonstrated and explained by an experienced and patient teacher. Skills covered in this class include cutting wire to length, using a hammer to texture the metal, filing edges, soldering, setting a cabochon, and finally polishing and finishing. Cabochon availability and pricing will vary—or you can provide your own calibrated 5 mm stone. Cost of the kit with all the components will be $35 in addition to the class fee of $95. When you leave class, you will not only have successfully made your first rings—but you will also take with you a comprehensive handout, with fully illustrated step-by-step instructions to help you get started in your home studio. If the time and date of the class you want to take is unavailable, please email the teacher, Vilina Hutter, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will either make room or put you on a waitlist in case another student can’t make it.
