Pendant – Texture and Solder

November 8, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cdn $55

Course outline: In this class with Darija Radic, you get to design your own pendant! We will be using two types of metal (silver, brass and/or copper) you can use two the same or two different up to you! You will pick two geometric shapes to cut out, texture and layer.

We will be learning how to properly use jewellers’ hand tools along with tips, tricks and technique. Tools such as Jewellers’ saws, hand files, emery sticks and flex shafts will be used. With all projects, we will be polishing so this gives us a chance to learn how to polish a flat surface, which, believe it or not, is much different than, let’s say, a ring. Along with the tools and polishing you will have a chance to learn a different type of soldering; we will be sweat soldering the two pieces together giving you a chance to further your skills.

I will be working along you through out the entire class making sure you are comfortable and I will be explaining each process and why we do it so you have a better understanding so the skills stick longer.

Skill level: Intermediate

Prerequisite: A beginner metalwork or soldering class is required.

Technique: Students will refine their sawing skills, filing and emery. Hammer precision, soldering techniques and polishing.
