Jewelry 201: Intermediate Projects - One Week Course with Deanna Pastel

Monday - Friday, December 11-15, 10-5p

Spend 5 days advancing and refining your jewelry techniques! This course will reinforce what you've learned in Jewelry 101 and continue to develop your fabrication skills in sterling silver. You will work with surface treatments, popular patinas, and methods to finish your projects to a professional caliber. This class will take your soldering skills to the next level focusing on work that has multiple solder seems and soldering small objects to large ones.  

Project 1: Stones with Corners - Set an irregular shaped cabochon in a hand made bezel from sterling sheet. Students may make either a ring or a pendant focusing on a stone that has corners.  

Project 2: Hollow Form Ring - Design and fabricate a hollow form ring out of sterling sheet. Push your skills to the limit with this difficult endeavor that will help you focus on three dimensional concepts, then set a faceted 2-4mm stone into a tube setting.

Project 3: The Hinge - Practice the construction of a simple hinge, then work on your individual project.  Complete this course by incorporating all of the techniques you've learned into a piece that has the ability to move or open. Locking mechanisms, doming and shifting when soldering will all be demoed during this project.  

 
Prequisite: Intro to Jewelry, or previous fabrication/soldering experience.
