What you'll learn in this metalsmithing class:

In this intermediate level, students will cover more advance techniques such as surface treatments for instance reticulation; controlling the melting point and changing the alloy of the sterling silver to create a rugged beautiful surface of mountains and valleys in miniature. Braiding twists of wire creating an intricate feeling of decoration dating back to ancient Egyptian metalworking. As well as learning how to recycle silver creating less waste and making the most of your metal.

Hammer texturing, wire working and the use of different burs and drills all combined with the opportunity to set a faceted stone come together to make a unique ring.

This workshop focuses strongly on aspects of good design in conjunction with technique.

You will also need a stone for your project. The studio will have a selection of faceted, cabochon and picture stones for sale for the workshop with a wide price range but please feel free to bring your own selection of stones.  We recommend sticking to hard stones - 7 or higher on the MOH Scale.

Question from Kourtney M.
I’d like to take this class but I’m not sure if intermediate is too advanced - I’ve done two stacking ring workshops already. Any advice?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Kourtney! Silversmithing Intermediate is personalized according to what the students want to learn - if they don't have anything planned then the school suggests: recycling, reticulation, and bezel setting.
