Snip, Solder, Repeat: Eye Catching Links and Chains!

In this two-day onsite 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 additional pieces of jewelry!


This course is part of the Metalwerx Course Scholarship program and a limited number of scholarships are available. Apply for a scholarship here: Metalwerx Course Scholarships
