This workshop is being held live and in-person
at our Texas studio!

If you are just starting out as a beginner working in a home studio, this workshop is for you! Join resident metalsmith Francesca Watson for a fun, two-day project that will introduce you to bezel creation, working with wire and sheet, and the basics of setting a cabochon. We'll also practice the fundamental skill of using a jeweler's saw and mark-making with simple stamps! Along the way, we'll discuss the properties of sterling silver; why flux is important and which ones work best for silver; how to get a professional finish on your piece; and much more. And as an added bonus, you'll get 30 days access to the same videos our online participants will get... at no additional cost!

This workshop is part of this summer's beginner series and offers essential foundational skills, even if you've never touched a torch. Absolutely everything necessary to complete the project is provided in this workshop – all tools, materials, and equipment! Bring a pen and notebook for note-taking and eye magnification if required, but otherwise just come and have fun!
