This course further develops techniques and processes learned in Rings + Pendants and takes the artisan beyond the beginner level. Participants will continue to create handmade rings and pendants with sterling silver, copper and brass. Technical demonstrations will include cold connection, soldering, forming, more elaborate stone setting techniques, and working with non-traditional materials used in the field of contemporary metalsmithing. Emphasis will be on improving skills and applying principles of designs to the medium. Students will be encouraged to develop their individual sense of style and work on projects that continue to challenge their skills. New students to the class are welcome. However, they should know how to solder and set a cabochon stone with bezel wire. No class 1/21 + 3/11.
