Your final piece will be of jewelry store quality that you can wear or give with pride! Please bring a $30 materials fee and a one time $20 lab fee to the first class.
Continue to build on the skills you learned in Jewelry I. Many new forming techniques will be taught, including use of a hydraulic press, fold-forming, and more advanced constructing. Students will work at their own pace, exploring ever-more advanced techniques. The instructors will guide and encourage students as they find their own "voice" as jewelry designers.

PRECIOUS METAL CLAY 1
W/ Martie Boyer $100.00
PMC consists of micoscopic particles of silver suspended in an organic binder to create plialbe material with the consistency similar to modeling clay. When fired in a kiln, the binder burns away and the metal particles fuse, forming a solid piece of silver. In the one-day workshop, we will focus on learning basic techniques with PMC: how to form, cut, mold and texture the material. No previous jewelry experience is necessary, and all tools will be provided. Students can expect to leave class with at least 2-3 pieces of jewelry.
Materials fee will be $75.00
