Monday + Wednesday, April 6 + 8, 6-10p

Most pre-made findings that can be ordered lack strength and do not properly enhance your work. Add a professional appeal to your work, while adding integrity and longevity to the piece with custom findings.

Many jewelry findings and components can be made quickly and easily, and make a big impact on your finished work. Students will build a database of finding options that they can create at home with a few simple tools and a crème bruleé torch - perfect for a small home studio.

Projects:
• Bound hook and eye clasp
• Spiral hook and eye clasp
• Spiral ear wire
• Headpins and eye pins
• Kidney earwire
• Soldered French ear wire
• Ball head pin
• Soldered hook and eye clasp

Once you've got the foundation of working in Findings and Links, sign up for the Argentium Simple Clasps and Chain class with Ronda Coryell and further your skills with more advanced clasp mechanisms. The class will also teach you the art of fusing; no soldering required! Beginners welcome!

Tuition: $185 + $40 Kit Fee
