Class: Definitely a Statement Ring! 10:00 am-1:30 pm
Discover how to set your favorite OMG gemstones into a contemporary ring design that is sure to Make a Statement!
Using square and half-round wires, students will learn how to formulate and finish this beauty so it fits every time. Class discussions will include: choosing the right stone for the right ring style and finger size; how to use ring sizers and mandrels that do not match; pricing your work for profit and more.
The class cost of $125.00 includes:
teacher fee and one project kit that consists of all precious metal wires needed for two rings, and one large, faceted gemstone. Everything that is necessary to complete one ring, as well as use of instructor tools and written follow-up instructions. (Please note: instructor will have additional wire kits, gemstones, tools, and DVDs for sale after class.)
I enjoy working with younger students, however, due to the nature of the tools and supplies used the age limit for this class is 12; all those students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a paying adult student.
Tools- although the instructor will provide all tools necessary for class use for those who would like to bring their own- Jewelers pliers: round nose, flat nose, chain nose, and wire cutters; Foot long RULER; 1/4 inch quilters, blue 3M painters, or stencil tape; Pin vise; Graduated Metal ring mandrel; rawhide or nylon mallet; ring sizers; Ultra fine point marker in black or dark color
