$ 185  

In this workshop you will learn how to stamp molten solder onto your metal earring pieces. The shapes of your earrings are up to you and what you want to make. These earrings tend to take on an organic look. With a wide variety of stamps to use, the look of your earrings is endless.

Once we are finished soldering, we will patina the earrings and they will look amazing. The patina makes all the grooves from the stamps “pop”.

This workshop is a great class for the beginner solder student.

Materials Fee $30 paid at beginning of class includes:

Metal to use for stamped solder pieces, sterling silver wire for earring hooks, patina and polishing pads needed for antiquing the metals.
