What's the Catch? Mountain Robbins Studio Oregon

Description: Unique hinged bracelet with hidden, keyhole catch is fabricated from heat-treated titanium and Argentium.

-Heat treating titanium to obtain an attractive and durable crystalline structure. The heat treatment can achieve vibrant colors including gold, magenta, purples and blues.  We will be using a special resist to achieve unique color patterning on titanium. 

-Roller printing a pattern on the titanium to give it more texture.

-Argentium Sterling Silver: We will cover the benefits of working with tarnish resistant Argentium Sterling Silver. Argentium is a silver alloy that is whiter and brighter than traditional sterling and can be annealed softer and hardened beyond traditional sterling.  We will be fusing Argentium silver granules, and wire enabling us to cut back on solder joints.

  -Water casting.  A demonstration will be provided.  Students may participate depending on time constraints to be determined at instructor’s discretion.

-Bezel setting. I will also instruct students on the process and benefits of constructing a thick wall bezel with tabs for setting a cabochon.

-Riveting.  Students will be using Robert’s “Stinger Riveting System” to make quick and flawless rivets that will join silver and titanium. 

 The workshop will also cover texturing, soldering, patina, forming and finishing.
