Specialized 6-week Jewelry Classes:
Introduction to Silversmithing:
Work with sterling silver to create, form, solder, and fabricate rings and pendants with a stone setting in the fast paced introductory class.
We take an optional trip to the Diamond district on a weekday morning halfway through the course to visit in person some of the resources in the jewelry industry including a gem dealer, a lapidary, a tool supply and a casting house. Small class sizes are perfect for both absolute beginners or those looking to refresh their skills.
Gold Alloying (Goldsmithing):
Starting 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 goldsmithing techniques with contemporary design sensibilities.
Wax Carving I:
Learn to carve, curve, hollow, texture, and sculpt using different types of wax to create rings, pendants and charms.
