About the Event
Have you been admiring the big, bold cuffs with statement stones? Want to know how to make these yourself? Then this class is for you!
We have multiple options for cuff making- most people complete at least 2 during class. There is a multiwire cuff or a hinged cuff for those with some metalsmithing experience and a single-wire cuff for those that are just beginning their journey. We will also create a bezel setting for a gemstone to solder to the cuff. Additionally, we will cover how to do an open backsetting for a lighter, less expensive piece, as well as cover how to add embellishments to the cuff. You are welcome to bring stones to class with you that you might like to use, but they should be no larger than 1.5 inches by about 1 inch (and must have a flat back).
Your material kit fee includes stones, sterling silver, and all studio consumables. You have the option to add on additional materials at class.
