Using torch firing in a variety of ways, students will make colorful and unique pieces of jewelry. Copper foil sheeting, wire, enamels, cold connections and embellishments will all be used to create layering and unusual effects in enameling. Patinas, texturing, and basic wire and metal applications will also be covered. Many torching techniques will be covered, such as adding glass beads, embedding items, stencils, patinas and more. The focus will be the endless possibilities of torch fire enameling and the benefits of using tab bezels to connect when using enamels.
