Two new classes for Fall 2017: Jewelry Essentials 1 and 2!
Taught over 6 consecutive Wednesday evenings, Jewelry Essentials 1 teaches a wide variety of essential skills and techniques needed by every aspiring and experienced jewelry maker. Topics include how to make and attach findings, multiple ways to cut and shape metal, cold connections, and beginning soldering among others. You will learn about a variety of basic and exotic jewelry tools and how to choose the right one for each task.
Once you’ve completed JE-1, you’ll have the skills you need to begin designing and creating your own unique jewelry as well as being ready for Jewelry Essentials 2.
Taught over 4 consecutive Wednesday evenings, Jewelry Essentials 2 takes you on to bezel and tube stone setting, sweat soldering, and ring-making. By the time you complete JE-2, you will have a solid foundation of knowledge and skills in the design and fabrication of a wide range of unique and beautiful jewelry pieces.
Jewelry Essentials 1 starts on September 27 and JE-2 starts November 29 — so you can complete one or both classes before Christmas AND complete multiple beautiful and unique jewelry Christmas presents along the way!
