Basic 2 - Bezels
Thirsting for more knowledge? This is the perfect class to expand upon the techniques you learned in Basic 101. Bezel setting cabochon stones introduces students to the basics of hard silver soldering, bezel setting a cabochon stone as well as pre-planning a design. Texturing will also be demonstrated and can be incorporated into the design. A simple pendant is a great project to incorporate these techniques.

Basic 3 - Hollow Construction
Let's shift towards a sculptural approach and explore more in depth knowledge of how to construct and solder with increased efficiency. Hollow rings are a great way to exercise your technical and fitting skills. Learn how to make the inner ring fit perfectly, then design anything you like for the outside shape with consideration to comfort and practicality...or not! These techniques are easily translated to containers and 3 dimensional components of all kinds.
