Project 1: » Basic Wedding Band
Duration: 1 Class
Material: Copper
Experience: All Levels - No previous experience required. In fact, all out students start with this project.
Aim: To teach each student the use of the very basic jewellery tools and techniques. General studio safety is addressed, and the use and storage of potentially dangerous substances are also covered.
Tools: The following tools will be used and discussed: Saw frame, saw blades (and how to fit them), half round pliers, jewellers torch and gas, solder and flux, acid, ring mandrel (aka triblet), rawhide mallet, 6" flat file, buff sticks (and how to make your own), how to use the flexi-shaft for sanding and polishing.
Techniques: Basic ring making to a certain size, piercing (sawing), soldering, pickling, shaping, filing, sanding and polishing.
Outcome: Once you have made this ring, you will be able to easily understand and apply the same ring making techniques to many other jewellery constructions for example; Collets (aka bezels), bangles and jump-rings. The same sanding and finishing routine applies to any jewellery piece and is thoroughly covered during this project.
