Relic Ring: Registration open

Altering the Past-mini class! Registration is open.

As an artist, jewelry designer, author and instructor, my ambition is to help you develop excellent technical skills and inspire you to greater creative depth in your jewelry making adventures. If you're interested in taking an e-course from me, scroll down and click a photo or the "see more" arrow.

Join me and we'll create a beautiful ring that looks like it may have been found in an archaeological dig. I'll show you how to achieve a wonderful texture that will give your piece the look of an ancient relic. Sawing, filing, texturing, forming, soldering and finishing are all techniques will all be covered in this fun workshop.

Soldering can be intimidating, but not in this class! Learn to create gorgeous, bezel-set gemstone rings. We'll walk through every step of construction, from stone selection to stone setting, and everything in between. 

Fall in love with the fascinating process of creating links. Wirework can be challenging but I'll show you my many tips and tricks to turn out perfect links, every time. We'll cover over 20 links in this class: classic as well as some of my own design.
