Chain Reaction! Learn the meditative process of building chains for jewelry. This intensive, three-day workshop will teach students the art of designing and fabricating their own sterling silver chains for making necklaces and bracelets. From wire jump rings to unique, texturized pieces, each student will have the opportunity to make either a short necklace chain and a bracelet chain, or one long necklace chain. For an additional materials fee, participants can work in 14k or 18k gold instead of silver. Basic metal-smithing and/or soldering skills are preferred but not required. Those interested in using gold instead of silver should email firstname.lastname@example.org a minimum of one week prior to the class to ensure that materials are available.
