g with 24 Karat pure gold, we custom alloy in the studio to create rich colors of 22 karat, 18 or even 14 karat gold.
Choose from deep rich yellow to pale light green gold, orangey-red to a delicate rose. We then learn to work with the properties of the individual alloys, how to mill the ingot into wire and sheet, and how to form a bezel for a gemstone setting.
We also learn how to recycle the gold material, how to fuse high karat gold, to raise or lower the karat, and how to transform old gold jewelry into stunning new designs.
We create a beautiful and unique piece of jewelry, combining traditional gold smithing techniques with contemporary design sensibilities.
