Bracelet Making Class October 20, 2012

I’m excited to be teaching a class at Pratt Fine Arts Center again! This time it is a one-day workshop on forging simple bracelet forms (such as cuff bracelets) in Pratt’s nicely equipped jewelry studio.

The class is primarily intended for jewelers interesting in working some hot metal and expanding their vocabulary of metal working skills. However, novice blacksmiths who are interested in delving into the world of jewelry will also be interested in some of the jewelry making aspects. Steel will be the primary metal used, with some demonstrations using other metals.

Heat it! Hammer it! Bend it! Wear it!

The class was great! Plenty of enthusiasm and energy!
