This class focuses on the basics of creating jewelry: sawing, filing, sanding, texturing, stamping, polishing, stone setting - and so much more. As students make the two sample projects, a sawn and pierced pendant and a ring with a bezel setting, they are practicing the soldering and fabrication skills necessary to make jewelry.
