For those new to jewelry making, this course allows you to get your feet wet if you've always wanted to try it. Through demonstrations and hands-on work, you become familiar with the tools of the trade: saws, hammers, torches and more, as you learn the basics of cutting, filing, texturing, soldering, finishing/polishing and simple stone setting.
If you've already taken 101, you'll expand on the earlier work and learn to make a bezel for an abstract cut cabochon stone, learning how to size custom stone settings and expand on your design experience. Students should inform the craft Center if they are new to metalworking, or are a continuing student. A materials fee of $65.00 will be added to the tuition.
