1-Day Metals Workshop
Instructor: Nanz Aalund
10am – 5pm
Beginning to intermediate level
In this workshop, students will learn the simple processes needed to make a keepsake locket. Using, sawing, circle punching, sweat soldering and tube rivets, we will make a swivel locket in one day. The hinge for this locket is what makes this project so much fun! A variation of this locket, which includes cold connection & stone setting will be published this summer in Lapidary Journal/Jewelry Artist magazine. Learn to make this locket yourself directly from the author/goldsmith!
