Two day workshop focusing on heat treating titanium to obtain an attractive and durable crystalline structure. The heat treatment can achieve vibrant colors ranging from gold, magenta, purples and blues.  We will also 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, discs and wire to sheet, enabling us to cut back on solder joints. I will also instruct students on the process and benefits of constructing a thick wall bezel for setting a cabochon. The workshop will also cover texturing, soldering, riveting, patina, post set pearls, roller printing, forming. and finishing.
