What catches your eye first on this bracelet cuff? Is it the warm glow of the patinated copper? Or the sparkle of the crushed opal? The combination of both, plus a dash of precious sterling silver, makes it absolutely irresistible! The cherry on top is that this cuff is beautifully suited to be worn proudly by either a woman or man.

In this class you will solder sterling silver wires to a copper base using a small butane torch, known in cooking circles as a crème brulee torch. You will mix a bit of UV resin into the crushed lab opal, fill the recess with it, cure it, then sand and polish the inlay to a beautiful shine. Adding a patina afterward is the perfect way to complete your creation.
Arrive early to class to choose the crushed lab opal you want for your new jewelry piece.

Please tie back long hair, wear closed toe shoes, and avoid wearing loose flowing clothing.

Materials Fee $55 paid at beginning of class includes:

Everything you need for the class will be provided, so there is nothing extra to bring.
