BRILLIANT BANGLES & BLANKS
This class will focus on creating brilliant bangles! Brilliant, because we will be learning how to create our own rolling blanks that can be used over and over. Through acid etching, we will embed the surface of our metal with a custom inscribed design that can be used to texture multiple future projects – perfectly sized for bracelets.
Brilliant, also, because we’ll be focusing on how to spice these simple forms up. We’ll discuss how to solder on details and borders, as well as settings for stones or other objects. Tube setting will be the main stone setting demonstrated, however students are welcome to utilize skills and techniques already learned from other classes.
