Francesca is heading to Ohio area to teach some of her favorite workshops in the studio of her good friend Eva Sherman. If you’re in the Cleveland area, she’d love to see you there!
The Big Ass Ring at Grand River Beads!
October 5 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm- $150
This fast-paced one-day jewelry workshop will have you cutting, stamping, soldering and forming sterling silver wire and sheet into a one-of-a-kind setting for a gorgeous statement ring. You’ll learn how to size and solder a ring band, create a bezel from scratch, and set a stone properly. Along the way, you’ll get tips and tricks to maximize your time at the bench and help with designing around unique cabochons.
It’s a good idea to have some prior soldering experience or you may not finish your project in class. (And if you can use a jeweler’s saw, that’s a huge bonus – but not required!) Otherwise, this is a great class if you’re a beginning metalsmith interested in taking your skills to the next level.
Workshop Fee: $150 (includes use of all required tools)
Kit Fee: $60 (payable to instructor on the day of class)
