Create your own textured art jewelry. You will learn basic metal fabrication techniques that include fold forming, cutting, filing, stamping, piercing, doming and soldering. Unique etched metal patterns can be applied freehand or from texture mats. Riveting will be demonstrated, as well as drilling river stones, using motorized hand tools, professional finishing, and working with silver precious metal clay. Lots of options, lots of fun!
