Metalsmithing for Enamels with James Carter
April 16-17, 2011 from 9 am - 5 pm $349 + $35 kit
Enamel gems require special care when setting into jewelry. Once fired, enamels are delicate and heat sensitive, and therefore require special techniques for mounting into jewelry. Learn professional techniques to showcase your enamels in silver and gold. Instruction covers beginning and advanced cold connections to trap enamels, as well as using bezels and creating 3-dimensional forms for beads. Explore creative ways to fabricate metal elements in order to showcase and enhance your enamel work.
Prerequisite: Fabrication 1 or experience.
