Fused PHAT Bangles Class

$60.00

Fusing is an ancient technique used to permanently connect precious metals. Cleaner, faster and less toxic than soldering, this is an excellent introduction to torch work. Students will learn to fuse bracelets, as well as embellish them with texturing and polishing.

Fused PHAT Bangles has now been combined with the Fused Pendants and Stackable Rings class! Learn or further your fire-manipulation skills to make two different styles of rings... those that can be worn on your fingers and those that can be multi-layered as pendants. In class you will learn to add embellishments, including hammering, surface texturing, stamping, polishing, and wire-wrapping beads. You will also learn to size finger rings for proper fit.



This class has been designed so that no previous fusing experience is required.
Great for beginners, but folks with fusing experience will be learning something new!
