Mixed Metals Solder Wrap Bracelet

Rochelle Gaukel
9:00 - 4:30
Tue April 18

[back to quicklinks]
$ 185  

In this workshop you will learn how to stamp molten solder onto metal shapes. These shapes will be the focal pieces to the wrap linked bracelet. You will form your links into ovals or circles and texturize them with a hammer so that they take on an organic look. Once your bracelet is assembled, we will use Novacan black to give it that patina that makes the stamped areas “pop” in your bracelet.

Materials Fee $20 cash paid at beginning of class includes:

Metal and brass wire for links. Also includes the patina and polishing pads needed for antiquing the metals
