Create ripple and waves in the surface of your silver with a torch. Then fuse gold leaf to the surface to create wonderful, abstract textures. This class will teach you all you need to know to prepare and reticulate your silver with a torch. Create fast, mixed metal and textured parts for your jewelry, or use these techniques to accent stone settings, pendants, earrings, rings and more. Students may make pendants or earrings with the kit provided. Students will pay teacher a $70 Kit Fee on the day of class for some materials—fee amount subject to change.
