Overlay, engraving, stone-setting and more with Albion Smith
March 27, 28 & 29, 2020
in San Diego, CA
Layer sterling silver sheet and wire and then add stones and 18k gold balls to create a fantastical showpiece of a ring. In this rare opportunity you’ll get countless tips and tricks from master jeweler Albion Smith gleaned from over 35 years of working in silver. Your ring will be open-backed (adjustable size) with one, two, or three stones. Depending on your experience level, you can add an overlay layer and hand-engrave or stamp embellishments for a rich textural surface. Bring your own faceted stones (if you have previous experience setting them) or learn with flat-backed cabochons (bring your own or shop our selection in class).
Albion Smith’s award-winning work has been published in several books, has won numerous awards and one of his pieces is in the Smithsonian museum's permanent collection. He shares his love of handcrafts through teaching. "I have an almost religious commitment to handcraft and am quite possibly a fanatic."
