Snip, Solder, Repeat: Eye Catching Link Necklace

Course Description

About this course

In this one-day workshop, students will learn a fun and fast way to make unique shaped links by soldering and forming them over shaped bezel mandrels. This workshop will help students fine tune their small-scale soldering techniques and will also show some quick, clean-ups tricks by using the flex shaft. Each student will come away with a handmade link necklace or pendant. For ambitious students who may finish early, there will be the opportunity to make a pair of earrings to match.
