This class will focus on two major types of jewelry construction, wax work and bench fabrication. In this workshop we will make a ring or pendant using the lost wax process which will include wax carving, spruing, casting and finishing. We will also make a ring or pendant with a semi-precious stone set in a bezel which will include cutting, forming, soldering and finishing metal. Both products will be made out of sterling silver.
