Long Time No See!

Hello Everyone!

Have you missed me? it has been a long time since I have sent a blog post our to everyone. It has been a busy summer, but I took some time on purpose for family and friends and I am so glad I did! I feel refreshed.

School is starting back and I am ready to get back in the swing of things. Recently I made a couple of new beautiful pieces of jewelry. One of them I thought would make a great class. I was encouraged to do so, and so I have.

I have set 2 dates for this class ONLY and I won't be offering it again until next spring or summer. I am also only taking 4 students per class. 

It is not a beginner class, however I feel that if you have had a couple of classes with me or have previous experience soldering or fusing silver, then you will be perfectly fine to take this class.

8 HOUR CLASS

You will make 1 - Argentium Silver Hammer Set Cabochon Wire Cuff 
(stone will be provided but may not be as shown)

You will learn basic:
Forming cuff from square wire
Forming and adding decorative swirl to cuff
Filing
Fusing Argentium Silver
Measuring and forming a bezel
Forming a step bezel
Fusing bezel to backplate
Trimming backplate
Soldering stone setting to cuff
Hammer setting stone
Finishing 

This is not a beginner class. You must have had at least one class (or experience) fusing or soldering prior to this class. It will take a full 8 hours. 

In this class you will set a cabochon using the hammer set method.  This method is used by advanced cab setters as the bezel is thicker and will hold the stone more sturdily.  We will also add a step inside the bezel. This will provide a nice deep bezel wall.

I WILL provide a stone, but will not be as shown. I will have a variety of stones to pick from.
I will only accept 4 students per class for this project.  

PLEASE ORDER CLASS NO LATER THAN 1 WEEK PRIOR SO I WILL HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO ORDER AND RECEIVE ALL MATERIALS FOR CLASS

Classes are held in my studio in Edmond, OK.  Once you have enrolled you will receive an email with detailed instructions and the address.

Again let me emphasize that there will only be the 2 classes I have on the schedule and only 4 students per class so it is first come, first enrolled.

I have both a weekday class - Thursday August 23rd, 2018 - AND a weekend class - Saturday August 25th, 2018

CLICK HERE to enroll!

I would also like to ask you each a favor, will you share this blog to others who you feel might be interested? I am trying to increase my email base and I know that word of mouth is the best way. Thank you so much in advance.

I look forward to seeing you in class!!!
