It’s a very good place to start.

The first project is a sterling sliver ring that is pierced or textured or both. On this first project you will learn how to use a jeweler’s saw, annealing, chasing/texturing, filing, sanding, polishing, forming and soldering a butt joint. The second project is an object of jewelry with a bezel set cabochon stone. In addition to learning how to fabricate the setting learn how to attach it to a ring, pendant or earrings. The third project is one of your own design using the skills taught in class. You’ll impress yourself and friends with what you walk out of class wearing!
