Saturday, April 4, 2020| 9am-1pm
Instructor: Nancy Sacco
Level: All Levels.
Technique: Metalwork/Hot Connections/Patina
Skills and techniques taught: Soldering, texturing metal, filing, forging, measuring for a correct ring size
Students will learn how to form and torch solder (using a small butane torch known in cooking circles as a creme brulee torch) sterling silver sheet metal into a ring that will be custom sized to his or her finger, how to make the spinners, and learn the secret of how to keep the
spinners from falling off the ring band! After the ring is complete, it will be tumbled to a glorious shine. Customize the ring by choosing to make a straight or wavy edge on the band, leave it smoothly pristine, hammer it for a cool faceted look, or choose to decorate it using metal stamps of your choice. Then select the metal or metals you want for the spinners. So many choices–so little time!
Students must tie back long hair, wear closed toe shoes, and avoid wearing loose flowing clothing
