The ability to solder is one of the more difficult tasks required to become proficient in jewelry making. Lectures, demonstrations and exercises help develop the confidence to handle common soldering situations a jeweler faces as well as strategies to approach more difficult soldering challenges. Learning to set a cabochon in a bezel, and basic polishing techniques are the other skills taught in this workshop. Students design and execute a major project within a set of guidelines that will include all the soldering techniques taught to gain a full jewelry making experience and will be asked to commit to 1 hour of reading, idea generation, and/or design homework each evening to prepare for next class.
Students are responsible for supplying their own tools. A tool list will be sent at least 2 weeks prior to class start. Students will have the option to rent a tool kit from the instructor.
