DIANE COOK – splen•did

From: $361.65


splen•did can be defined as: magnificent; very impressive; possessing or displaying splendor, marked by showy magnificence.

splen•did is a combination of two ring designs, now standing on its own. A substantial, multi layered piece, ring or pendant, demonstrates many of mine, and soon to be your, favorite techniques: bezel setting, prong setting, my token technique named ‘lifted & layered’, ruffled metal and more. This will be a fast-paced class, drawing upon metalsmith techniques already a common part of the intermediate student’s skill level, such as sawing, bezel setting, and soldering, just to name a few. After a day+ of layering metal coaxing wire, prong setting, then finally ‘lifting’ the base, I aspire to have the student pay special attention to the design of the split-ring band (or bail for the pendant), then perhaps add my go-to way of finishing a piece. I hope you can join me, as we together design your next favorite piece of jewelry. It will surely be splen•did!
