Rivited Earring
Class

Tina Hinojosa

Description

Adding interest and a splash of color to simple jewelry pieces does not have to require a lot of effort. In this project-based workshop participants will have step-by-step guidance while they create and elevate a pair of simple hoop earrings using a few quick techniques. This is an excellent introductory workshop
for beginners to experiment with metalsmithing, but some more advanced topics will be covered, as well. Materials will be supplied to create one pair of sterling silver earrings and tools will be supplied for use in class. We will be performing light soldering, forging, riveting, filing, sanding, and finishing. If you prefer to use your own tools, please feel free to bring them. We will be handling hot metal, so closed-toed shoes and clothing made of natural fibers and covering all extremities is recommended.
