Cab and Cut (6 sessions)

January 14 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cdn $360.00 +Kit fee: $10, payable to the instructor the first day of the class.

Course outline: Dive in head first in a six-session metalsmithing adventure with Darija Radic!

We will begin by making a simple ring. You will choose what kind of design you want for your band and cut it out, you’ll emery it and polish it. After that we will be fabricating a bezel setting for a stone cabochon of your choice and solder that on. Next, you will then clean your ring, polish it and learn how to set a stone. The design shown is only one of many possibilities!

This is a simplified lesson overview; you will be learning how to solder, polish, use jeweller’s hand tools such a jeweller’s saw and small hand files, and learn all about how to work with tiny detail as you create your ring, bezel for a stone and set it! All of these metalworking skills are very useful for future projects at home at or a BeadFX Open Metal Studio.

This multi-session class will be held on the following dates, 6:00 – 9:00pm: Monday, January 14; Monday, January 21; Monday, January 28; Monday, February 4; Monday, February 11; and Monday, February 25. The class fee shown is for the full six-week program; credit will not be given for missed classes.
