Susan Lenart Kazmer | Rings – Caging Objects – Industrial Jewelry | Wednesday, February 5, 2020 | 9:00 am until 4:30 pm


In this workshop focus on building an uncommon and unexpected ring band in a cage-like personal style of mine allowing use of  negative and positive space to match the overall build of the piece.

Start by building a unique cage bezel form. The cage form is a strong element in my finished work to produce a strong industrial vibe to  showcase a dimensional object with forged and soldered wire to show all sides. Use a stone provided in the kit, an object or enamel piece built in the previous class as a container and hollow form Talisman. The construction is perfect to add in multiples because of its use of positive and negative space.

Learn to forge 16-gauge sterling silver to create a nail head. Twist and solder wire to create a bezel form. Soldering techniques using hard, medium and EZ to complete your piece.

Also, work with a stick to create a personal relic or Talisman by marking and symbolism by burning, scratching, drilling rubbing and adding color to make a piece your own.
