What You'll Learn
Working with the raw materials frees you to produce exactly what you envision. Jewellery designers are often at the mercy of the metalsmiths they commission to create their pieces. Fashion jewellery artists depend on their component suppliers. As a metalsmith, however, your only limit is your imagination. Roll, saw, solder, rivet and polish precious metals into unique, wearable artworks.
Learn traditional ways to manipulate gold, silver, copper, bronze, and metal alloys. Build confidence working with metals by piercing, drilling, forging, fusing and soldering. Apply textures, rolling your own metal sheet and draw wires to custom thicknesses. Execute perfect professional finishing techniques.
