Jessica Jordan Cote | Lasso Ring | Wednesday, January 31st, 2018 | 9 am until 4 pm


Find a balance of rustic and refined as you explore the beauty of mixed metals and finishes.  In this class, students will construct a unique sterling silver ring with a distinctly elegant curvature, distressed textures and glowing golden accents.  Proper sizing, light forging, soldering, bezel making, stone setting and finishing will all be covered in this fun and free-spirited project that focuses on introducing intermediate metalsmiths to the world of 18k gold.
