In this intensive three-day workshop learn to fuse sterling silver and 18K gold granules and wire in the manner of the ancient Etruscans, Egyptians, and Greeks.
This straightforward method provides immediate gratification with very little clean up! Create traditional or contemporary patterns, while fabricating a small pendant and a ring.
The technique for wire appliqué and granules on sheet, as well as the ability to fuse metal before forming or soldering, provides endless opportunity for stylization and individual design.
Victoria will present a number ways to achieve different patterns for a variety of types of jewelry.
Metal is included in cost of workshop to make one project. Extra metal can be purchased through OQZO Metalsmith. Please note all metal should be dead soft STERLING from RioGrande (not argentium or fine silver). Please order from RioGrande to avoid blistering problems.
