Have you always wanted to learn to solder but were afraid to use a torch? This class teaches the basics of simple soldering techniques that will start you on your way to making your own metal jewelry designs. Using a simple set up that can be easily duplicated at home, students will learn to fabricate three jewelry basics: a set of stack rings, a pendant and a pair of earrings. Upon completing these pieces, students will have the confidence to use a torch with ease and have a solid starting point to create their own designs.
