Those who enroll in a five-week class can expect to complete 2–3 jewelry projects. The first project is making a sterling silver band ring. The process introduces basic techniques including sawing, soldering, forming, finishing, and stone setting. Students then can choose from an in-house collection of gemstones to add a splash of color. In addition, students learn many classic techniques, including how to make a bezel setting by hand. For this class, tool and studio use are provided, but students must supply their own materials. A materials list will be provided at registration, along with a list of merchants where the materials may be purchased.
