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.
