Wayne Werner Workshop "Intro to Gold Soldering - Gold & Silver Stacking Rings with Wayne Werner"

Intro to Gold Soldering - Gold & Silver Stacking Rings with Wayne Werner

Have you ever wondered what the differences are between working with silver and gold? This fun, fast-paced workshop explores measuring and cutting the perfect size ring, annealing silver and gold, texturing the metal using hammers and files, soldering, and finishing techniques for both sterling silver and 14k yellow gold. We will start with 14 gauge round wire (or thinner if you wish). Students can choose from different demonstrated styles and create their own stacking rings. Demonstration will also include adding a bezel cup to set a cabochon. Basic soldering skills are helpful, but not necessary.
**Due to this class being online, the instructor will use a small butane torches like “blazer” and mini flame styles.

Online (Students are welcome to sign up to use the ArtCenter Jewelry Studio and bring their own device for Zoom, plus headphones. Please email LisaJ@LighthouseArts.org if you plan to come in!)
