Setting Beachstones in Silver with Cheryl Jacobs

Setting Beachstones in Silver with Cheryl Jacobs

Class Description:
Connect with the west coast as you learn how to drill and set beach stones and glass in silver and copper bases. We will guide you through designing and building your own one of a kind pendant or set of earrings.

Beginning with stones provided by Cheryl (or feel free to bring your own special small stones), you will learn the proper drilling techniques that you can apply to future projects. We will rivet and apply texture with various tools including stamps and texture hammers. Lastly, you will have the opportunity to apply patina to your handmade jewelry.

We will take a break from instruction for lunch. You are welcome to bring your own lunch and remain in the studio or visit one of the many fantastic dining options in Downtown Courtenay.
