Metalwerx @ the AIC: Striking Silver Earrings

December 10, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Instructor: Emily Glimp joined the Studiomate Artists’ community at Metalwerx in 2015. Since then, she has been enjoying the  Metalwerx community, pursuing her quest for skill acquisition in techniques involving metal fabrication of jewelry  and small-scale functional objects. Her favorite metalworking techniques include fusing, soldering, and texturing; lately she has been focused on developing skills in the art of filigree. As a life-long rock-hound, she also has a  fascination with gems, pearls, and other materials’ potential as adornment for pieces made using classic  silversmithing techniques.

 

Metalwerx + AIC Collaborative Workshops | FALL 2022

This fun and fast paced workshop will cover two techniques for creating silver earrings that  are simple to make and striking to wear. The class will begin with demonstrations on how to create  links for two classic chain styles that will be adapted into a variety of earrings designs. Students will learn some metal smithing basics including forming, texturing, and finishing sterling silver. Wrap up the day by discovering how to create ear wires in order to bring (or wear) two new pairs of earrings home! For more information and to register please follow the link here

Cost: $75 (plus $25 materials fee)
