▪ Fundamentals of Jewelry Fabrication II ▪

This is the follow-on class to Fundamentals of Jewelry Fabrication I. This fun and interactive 6-week class further develops the skills you learned in the earlier class along with how to create a bezel and basic stone setting, plus tons of demonstrations and hands-on work. You'll create beautiful pieces of jewelry while expanding and building your metalsmithing skills. All students will be following the same curriculum!

Recommended tools to bring to the class:

  • Round nose pliers
  • Flat nose pliers
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Flush or semi-flush cutters that will cut up to 12 gauge wire
  • Ball peen or chasing hammer
  • Mandrels of different sizes (knitting needles and round writing pens work well for this)
  • Needle files
  • 6 inch ruler
  • Soft tape measure
  • Steel bench block
  • Sharpie® or other indelible pen
  • Hand towel
  • Polishing cloth
  • #000 Fine steel wool

Some tools will be available to borrow; however, I highly recommend bringing your own tools if you have them. I typically have quality tools available for purchase.

A separate materials fee will include the necessary supplies to complete all class projects. A variety of supplies will also be available for purchase. And, of course, you may bring your own. You'll also take home a complete written tutorial.
