Special requirements for classes during the pandemic: Picture of vaccination card required by email or text within 24 hours of signup. If you did this when taking Silversmithing 1, that will meet the requirement. Masks may also be required in class depending on CDC recommendations. Please know that you are welcome to wear a mask if you wish. This class is the second in a series of three designed to introduce students to the process of fabricating (constructing) jewelry using techniques such as sawing, filing, soldering, finishing and polishing. SSII focuses on soldering; specifically pick soldering. Students will be making a chain of soldered links-including cutting their own jump rings! We cover making two clasps - a toggle clasp and a hook clasp - in this class. Please note: learning to solder, especially pick soldering, is a skill that is essential to your success in every area of silversmithing! Prerequisite: Silversmithing I Supply kit for this class is around $55, which is due at the beginning of class and can be purchased when you arrive for the class. You will also need to purchase a Butane torch (approximately $45) and a canister of butane fuel for this course, which should be purchased at the beginning of the class, with the kit, unless you bring these items from home if you already have them. No additional tools are required for this class apart from what is provided at the benches in the classroom.
