Date: June 8-12, 2020 (Summer)
Medium: Metals/Jewelry
Instructor: Molly Sharp (email)

This six element, linked bracelet will enchant and challenge students all at the same time. Using sterling silver, students will construct a very unique bracelet with six diverse panels. Many basic metalsmithing techniques will be explored including sawing, filing, soldering, setting a stone patterning with the rolling mill, rivets and fusing 24k gold to silver (keum boo). Each bracelet will be an expression of the individual student. Some knowledge of metalsmithing techniques and terms is required and good eyesight or magnification a must.
