process.jpg

Take a workshop at Alison Antelman's private studio in the Historic Sawtooth Building. The studio is a light filled space with torch, rolling mill and basic shop tools. Students get their own table space and bench pin and are expected to bring their own hand tools. I now have 2 soldering stations!

Engineering Your Way Out  $395 including Most of kit-students bring sheet sterling. A list is emailed in the Fall.
Develop your ability to solve jewelry fabrication problems and learn solutions to common design and fabrication challenges. Design and create a hinged bracelet or necklace. Students create a “map” of their project, learn to make irregular shaped bezel settings for unusually shaped stones, add hinges and where to place them for irregular shapes and using stainless steel wire, solder sterling terminations to the steel, add a hook clasp and complete your project.

Students are guided through the process along with discussion, case studies and actual examples of problems as well as their solutions. We will explore the interplay of movement and functionality in jewelry and the approach from the wearers point of view (ie: does it sit funny on the neck, is it too heavy, does the pendant flop over).The real benefit to this class is learning how to engineer your jewelry projects as you discover solutions to common design and fabrication challenges. Step-by-step handouts are supplied along with samples. Basic fabrication and soldering required.

Cancellation Policy: Full Refund up to 14 days prior to class start date, transaction fees may apply. No Refunds after that date unless the spot is filled.

Tubing Technical: an exploration in fabrication


Tubing definition: a hollow form open at both ends, not necessarily round. Explore the myriad ways to make and use tubing. Join, bend, connect, latch, hang, set faceted trillion stones and hinge using tubing. Students will make a hinged pendant and set a trillion stone in a telescoped tube setting hanging from a bail made from bent tubing. A step-by-step handout with images and text is supplied. Basic fabrication and soldering required.

Example of project. Make tubing/bail, solder hinges, build trillion setting with a seat for the stone.
