Intermediate Jewelry Fabrication – Emphasis on Bezels
If you’ve learned the basics of jewelry fabrication, this metals class will give you the opportunity to pursue projects of your own choice while emphasizing the technique of bezel-setting stones. Directed projects will also be offered to target enhancing your jewelry-making skills by learning about mechanisms such as hinges and closures as well as the use of the hydraulic press. After demos, there will be lots of work time and individual guidance. Some jewelry fabrication experience is necessary. Students will provide their own materials; some metal is available for purchase during class. Tools and equipment are provided, or students may bring their own. Masks and social distancing are required in this and all Sawtooth classes.
