Love stones? Love metal? Working in a small home studio? In just one day, you’ll learn a super-simple soldering method that will allow you to do it all in a small space and with a minimum of tools and equipment. You’ll design a beautiful pendant using a unique, one-of-a-kind freeform stone as your guide. Create awesome, smooth sterling silver balls from scrap to embellish your piece and use hand-crafted stamps and lining tools to add personalized marks and interest. Finish by setting the stone and adding a simple bail to hang it from your favorite chain – you’ll be amazed at how much you can learn in just one day! And best of all, you’ll do it all with a small, easy-to-use culinary butane torch!
This workshop is the perfect workshop if you’ve never soldered before or if you need a refresher on skills you haven’t used for a while. 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!)
