PATINA MAGIC ON JEWELRY
INSTRUCTOR: BONNIE NELSON
Bonnie shares her experiences using heat on metal. Students will learn how to apply heat to copper and brass, creating fantastic colors to use in jewelry that they will make in class. You don’t always need a full scale studio to create jewelry, just a few tools, a little heat and voila! – you've made a creation you can wear or give as a gift. Techniques for cold connection jewelry will be taught, as well as how to texture the metal to achieve that special effect.
Students should bring the following tools: Ball Ping Hammer, Needle Nose Pliers, Curved Pliers, Steel Block, Jewelry Shears, Texture hammers (optional)
Note: If students need any tools, they can also contact Bonnie at 719-231-7049 by October 10th. She will have them available for pickup.
Materials included with a $25 materials fee due to the instructor when you arrive. Copper, brass, and silver sheets, torches, and other jewelry findings will be provided.
