Jessica Jordan Coté | Indian Summer Ring | Thursday, February 7, 2019 | 9 am until 4 pm


Some days just call for a bit of unfurling.  This blossom-inspired ring does just that, with silver petals opening to reveal a smattering of brightly lit gemstone cabochons.  Students will learn a unique approach to cutting, forming and layering sheet metal, soldering uncommon angles, as well as stone setting in confined spaces.  Use of shot plates to create embellishments will add a bit of texture to the final design.  Ring band sizing and forming will also be covered- students who do not wish to make a ring may make a pendant.  Intermediate to Advanced.

Out of stock

I'm interested in this class. Please add me to the waiting list.
