Gold on Steel with Bette Barnett
Friday - Sunday, April 5-7, 10-6p

Marrying steel with gold results in dramatic mixed metals jewelry that responds to today’s modern aesthetic for work that is bold yet maintains a richness. Learn from a master who has devoted her work to exploring and experimenting with gold and steel jewelry.

In this class students will learn how to fuse steel and gold to create dramatic mixed metals jewelry. This class provides a broad exposure to all techniques required to work with steel and gold, including the basics of working with mild (cold rolled) steel and torch and heat fusing gold to steel. In addition, the students will learn the process of Keum Boo, patinating, and sealing steel jewelry. Students will be able to complete at least one finished piece of steel/gold jewelry.
