Sawing and Flush Setting: Create 6 projects 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.

Combining Argentium with copper, and brass, you will learn sawing, piercing, roller printing, fusing surface decoration, making ear-wires, sweat soldering, and patinas on metals. Learning to flush mount stones will give you the skills to take your projects to a higher level of ornamentation.

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 projects are made with Argentium Silver.
