The Intro to Gold (Gold I) was just what I wanted to learn about using gold as a jewelry material. I had prior experience with making working silver and brass into rings, but was curious how to work with gold as a unique material. The methods of jewelry-making are many but I appreciated the classical techniques that this class engaged. The projects touched upon soldering, forming and bezel making for a stone of our choice. So I learned a little about gems as well. It will take more than one class to make what I want though, so I’m signing up for Gold II!
