Simple Clasps and Chains: Create 5 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. Making rings with Argentium is simple and easy. 

The right components can make or break a showpiece. Learning how to make your own simple clasps and chain is an important step in designing and creating original work. 

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.
