Learn how to completely hand fabricate your jewelry in sterling silver with gold accents. Students prepare a charcoal block and melt down gold shot to make an ingot. Roll out your gold for a variety of purposes including; Bezel, sheet and design accents to create a Bezel set stone Ring. Learn to solder gold accents to your silver jewelry. Students begin with 18k gold shot and sterling silver flat wide wire. The base of the ring is flat sterling wire that you will modify for project needs including rolling, cutting and measuring. The skills learned here allow you to reuse your own scrap and mill your own metals…which comes in handy when you start a project late on a Friday night and there’s no time for to order what you need.  For the purpose of this class we’ll be using clean material.
