6/16 - Sat                      Finishing your Loop-in-Loop Chains

(Raychel Wengenroth)

You asked for it...you got it! A class designed to walk you through finishing touches of the chain lengths you've worked on after the Beginning Loop-in-Loop Chain Making workshops. Learn how to true up your chains by tamping, pulling through a wooden draw plate, annealing and tumbling to a bright finish. Add jump rings or end caps and the clasp of your choice. "S" hooks and toggles can be simple yet elegant finishing elements offering many creative possibilities. By the end of the day you'll transform your irregular chain length into a stunning piece you'll be proud to wear.

Skill level: Beginning Loop-in-Loop Chain Making

Tuition: $100

Lab Fee: $5

Materials: Bring your completed chain lengths. Students can bring their own silver or purchase in class.
