Rings and Bands: 6 rings in 5 days!

Master Goldsmiths and Certified Argentium Silver instructor, Ronda Coryell will introduce you to basic jewelry making skills. Argentium silver is certified to be Responsible Silver: Never from a mine, always from recycling. Making rings with Argentium is simple and easy. Learn how to fuse, solder, twist wire, texture and fuse granulation for surface decorations. Also learn to resize your rings up/down.

Students will have the opportunity to finish seven different rings. The final day of class includes a one on one review with the instructor to show how to finish to a level of excellence. Often the seemingly minute but fine details can take a piece from "good" to “show quality”. You may bring 18k gold or higher karat to add to rings. All levels welcome! No Prerequisite
