The Big Ass Ring is BACK! 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 using age-old techniques with a modern twist. If you’re interested in taking your metalsmithing skills to the next level, this is a don’t-miss workshop.
This workshop is the perfect workshop if you’re taking your soldering skills to the next level or if you need a refresher on skills you haven’t used for a while. (Please note that this is an advanced beginner workshop, so students without prior soldering experience may not be able to finish their project in class.) Absolutely everything necessary to complete the project is provided in this workshop – all tools, materials, and equipment! In addition, you’ll receive online access to Francesca’s Essentials for the Kitchen Table Jeweler on the innovative Makery University platform and 90 minutes for lunch to shop the wonderful Colors of the Stone show at the beautiful Casino del Sol!
Bring a pen and notebook for note-taking and eye magnification if required, but otherwise just come and have fun!
Workshop fee: $225 (includes all materials!)
