Learn how to design and create stunning art jewelry from silver sheet, wire, and other metels. Traditional tools and their uses are covered in depth. Beginners explore the basic jewelry-making skills of layout, sawing, soldering, forming, surface texturing, chain making, simple stone setting, and finishing. More advanced students expand their basic skills with an emphasis on creativity, design, and play. By exploring the properties of materials such as colored metals, woods, Lucite, and precious metals, along with cold connection riveting and stamping, participants increase their design and jewelry-making palette in a broad and exciting way. Beginners and more advanced students benefit from individual attention as they build their jewelry skills.
The Art League Jewelry and Metal program covers various aspects of designing and creating art jewelry and small metal objects. Each class is suited for beginners, unless noted. The classroom is equipped with an extensive assortment of tools and machines. Personal tools and supplies are discussed during the first class. A $20 lab fee is payable to the instructor at the first class to cover consumables. Basic jewelry tool kits may be rented or purchased for home use for the duration of any jewelry class.
