Alexa Von Suess
Beginner Silversmithing: Stacking Rings
Delve into the complex art of silversmithing while having fun and learning a new skill!
In this workshop, we'll learn how to make three sterling silver stacking rings that you can customize however you wish. GIA Certified jeweler Alexa Suess will show you how to cut and file sterling silver, learn the nuances of soldering and textured forging, and explore the many ways to treat, polish, mattify, oxidize and otherwise finish the rings to your liking. Rings are a great way to begin exploring sizing and unisex jewelry styling. All supplies are included and no previous metalsmithing skills are necessary.
Since we will be working with hand tools and treatment chemicals, please wear clothes you wouldn't mind getting dirty. We do not recommend attending this class if you are pregnant.
