Soldered Components Necklace & Earrings Class




Learn to make a simple and elegant necklace using sterling silver and premade chain. Students will use a butane micro torch and a simple set up to shape and solder a variety of links using heavy-gauge sterling silver wire. Next, you'll earn how to solder the links to chain, and solder a clasp to the end. To finish off the design, you'll adorn your piece with pearls and hand-made headpins. As a bonus, you'll also create a matching pair of delicate earrings with handmade earwires and components. This set is a sure-fire stunner! Appropriate for all levels.
