Class Description: 

Learn to create beautiful wirework and improve your soldering skills. Filigree jewelry has a long history and is made all over the world, from Mexico to Senegal, from Russia to Thailand, from Norway to the South Pacific.  In this class, you will learn how to make these graceful and intricate pieces yourself.  We will explore how to construct wire frames to create forms that are lightweight but strong. We'll then work with different soldering methods, including chip solder, paste solder, and dry powdered solder. You will leave with a pair of filigree earrings, a pendant, or both.  This is an intermediate-level course; some experience with soldering is required. 


A materials fee (appx $10) is payable to instructor; kit includes sterling & fine silver for class projects.
