***UPDATED*** Richard Salley | New Growth Cuff | Monday, February 3, 2020 and Tuesday, February 4, 2020 | 9 am until 5pm pm


This workshop is designed to help you grow your metal working skills while making this handsome sterling silver cuff.  We will start off making a thick-wall, castelated bezel for a stone of your choosing. Next you’ll learn how to make a comfort-fit bracelet band that you’re sure to use over and over again. Finally we will tackle the fabrication of the branch & leaf elements…really fun and challenging! Add a few decorative embellishments, and maybe a tube-set faceted stone or two for a truly one of a kind piece of jewelry that you’ll be proud to wear and show off! You are bound to pickup some techniques and skills that will help you branch out in new directions.
