DIANE COOK – CROSS MY HEART RING WORKSHOP

From: $307.06

PREREQUISITE: Intermediate – Students must be skilled in using a Jewelers saw and have soldering experience.

This is your chance to work on designing a special, and maybe your first prong set ring. Students will have the opportunity to explore several techniques on forming embellishments using shot plates to adorn the ring and bangle wire dies to add texture to the ring band (if choosing to use the low dome wire). Using metal stamps can also be a fun and easy way to add additional texture and added interest to both the front and back of your ring. Multiplicity has a rolling mill that you will be able to also use to add texture to your metal, as well. We have a small group of traditional metal texture plates, but if you’d like to add some special texture of your own, please visit Rolling Mill Resources to pick out your very own roller print patterns. I will demo how to use these at the beginning of class.

THIS IS A 2-DAY WORKSHOP
