Make pure silver rings with basic tools by forming metal clay and firing it in a kiln or with a torch. With a simple home set up, you can make stacking rings, wide band rings, textured rings and rings with stones set in place.
This great workshop with Arlene Mornick will focus on metal clay fabrication and sizing techniques for rings. Learn how to accommodate shrinkage, prepare tools, add textures and apply decorative elements. Arlene will also review firing and polishing methods.
Projects include the design and making of a wide band ring with a Dichroic glass setting (Dichroic glass resembles opals, and shows two different colors by undergoing a color change in certain light conditions), and a narrow band ring with a 4mm stone setting.
