$ 185  

Simple, elegant and eye-catching! This wire cuff bracelet is accented with a stone of your choosing to coordinate any color in your wardrobe. Leave the wire shiny or add texture to make it your own! Stone setting, cuff forming and of course soldering! Consider making it to match the Shadow Box Ring!

Materials Fee $65 in cash paid at beginning of class includes:

sterling silver sheet, wire and bezel wire for two bracelets. Flux, solder, sanding papers, polishing supplies. Butane, patina and applicators and other disposables.
I will also have additional silver and a small selection of stones for sale.

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

please bring one or more cabochon stones to set (please keep under ½” oval and round are easiest to work with).
Basic jewelry tools; flat, needle nose, half round with flat pliers. 6” to 8” flat and half round jewelry files, cut #2, these are jewelry files for metal not diamond files**Please no ‘Harbor freight specials’** check Otto Frei for good files. Jeweler’s saw with 1/0 or 2/0 blades. Ruler or digital measuring calipers.
Large butane torch (like a Big Buddy) I will have butane gas available.
Portable bench pin. Because of the way the tables are made it is a good idea to have some extra strips of
wood to help the fit, maybe a stack of popsicle sticks? A Steel bench block, tweezers
Rawhide hammer, ball peen hammer, texture hammers if you want
Nice to have but not necessary are ring forming pliers with plastic inserts, optical assistance and lighting.
