Student work from the 5 Day Metalsmithing Retreat
Whew! 5 days of teaching the basics of metalsmithing done! Students came in, some completely new to metalsmithing, and learned how to saw, file, sand, hammer, texture, rivet, solder, make a ring, bezel set a stone and polish with power tools. This was the first group to take this new course and we had a lot of fun - intense! But a lot of fun. Check out more of their work (mostly the finished rings they made at the end) on my Flickr page. They each made 1 or more sawn and stamped pendants, 1 riveted pendant, 1 or more basic soldered pendants, and a ring with a stone setting that brought all of their new skills together in one project.
You can find more fun upcoming workshops at SilveraJewelry.com.
