Silver-Wear I & II

with Jan and Keith Stephens

at William Holland

Class Description

Silver-Wear 1 and Silver-Wear 2 Combo Course

Jan and Keith will be offering a combination class of Silver-Wear 1 and Silver-Wear 2.  Keith will teach Silver-Wear 1 for those students who are new to the art and Jan will teach Silver-Wear 2 for those who have taken their Silver-Wear 1 class and are ready to move on to the intermediate level projects.  Please see class descriptions below for the level in which you would like to register.

 

"Silver-Wear" 1

Students will recycle vintage Silver plated flatware into beautiful “Silver-Wear” Jewelry.  They will learn cold forming techniques, polishing, buffing, basic wire wrapping, texturizing, stamping, using patina, making simple cold connections and other metal working skills.

 

The lab fee covers all materials for the required projects, consumable supplies and the use of specialized tools for the course. If desired, finer metals, gemstones and findings will be available at additional costs. The instructors will also have optional silverware pieces, tools and supplies available for purchase, at fair market prices, for completing extra projects at the school or at home.

 

On Thursday and Friday, if required projects are complete, students will have the opportunity to develop their own unique designs using the skills they have learned during the week.  At this time, students are allowed to bring to class their own collections of silverware, (either Sterling or Silver plate) or they can purchase additional silverware and supplies (Sterling or Silver Plate) from the instructors at fair market prices.

 

Students may need to use vision magnification to see clearly. Otherwise, all you need to bring with you is creativity and imagination for this unique, fun-filled class.

 

"Silver-Wear" 2

Move your “Silver-Wear” skills to the next level in this new and exciting intermediate level course.  Building on the skills learned in “Silver-Wear” I, this class will take the student further in creative design and embellishment including shaping, stone capturing, and other artful enhancements.
