Have you ever wanted to know how to create unique patterns and designs in metal?
In this informative workshop students will be instructed on several techniques used to make interesting designs in copper and brass.  The following techniques will be explored along with a few cold connections and basic jewelry skills:
 Creative Techniques with Metal
 Chemical Etching Creative Techniques with Metal
 Texturizing Creative Techniques with Metal
 Color Embossing Creative Techniques with Metal
 Word Stamping Wire Wrapped Beads and Sliders
During each process we will be creating several pieces that we will in the end be using to make a beautiful bangle bracelet.  Each student will leave with a finished bracelet and a wealth of knowledge to use in future metal creations.

Students should bring basic jewelry tools, (chain nose pliers, round nose pliers, and wire cutters) if they have them.
Apron and lap towel.
