Craft Series Workshop: Gemstone Ring @ SVMoA Hailey Classroom | Hailey | Idaho | United States
1:00 pm
Dip your toe into the dazzling world of “metal clay” with this intermediate class where we will build a silver ring with a gemstone, fire it with a kiln, then polish and add patina. You’ll leave with a ready to wear fine silver ring set with the stone of your choice. Those with some metal clay experience are best positioned to benefit from this class. If you have zero knowledge of metal clay, take heart! We’ll give you extra attention to help you succeed. There are a myriad of jewelry techniques for making rings, but the advantage of using the “metal clay” method is its suitability for sinuously sculpted detail. In the class we will learn which gemstones can be fired in place and which must be set after firing. We will discuss how shrinkage during the firing process affects the size of the ring and adjust for that. We will learn how to make a strong ring band and various ways to decorate it. We will also discuss kiln firing versus torch firing and the advantages of each. Medium: Jewelry Age and ability: adults, beginner to intermediate
