If you love the glow of gold against the jet-black of patinated steel, this is the workshop for you. In this live online workshop, you will learn how to create beautiful mixed metals jewelry with steel. Steel is lightweight, strong, malleable and versatile. Even more important is its high melting temperature, which allows other metals to be fused to steel, creating dramatic patterns and contrast.
