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