Feb. 23 (Sat): Fused Fine Silver Rings
Taught by new instructor Janet Kornegay, silver and metal artist. You can use fine silver wire to make stylish and beautiful stackable rings! Fine silver is a pure metal, and doesn’t require a solder to join the ends of the wire. In class you will learn how to coil and flush cut your wire to make multiple rings, and use a butane torch to fuse the fine silver. You will learn how to add surface texturing and work harden your rings with hammers. You will also learn to size finger rings for proper fit. This fusing technique can be used to create other design pieces, or even to create handmade chain!
This class has been designed so that no previous fusing experience is required.
• 14 gauge and 12 gauge fine silver wire – 12 inches of wire will make ~5 stacking rings (depending on size)
