In this class, we will make bracelets, pendants, rings and various other projects. Pendants will be sculpted and border wrapped. Projects will be made from half hard and dead-soft wire in either sterling silver or gold-filled. We will be using mostly 20, 21, and 22GA square wire, as well as 18 and 20GA half-round wire. Students should bring their own tools and any wire, cabochons, and beads they wish to use; however, the instructor will have wire and other supplies available for purchase if necessary. Each student should have an Optivisor or another Magnifier. Materials cost will depend on the types and quantities of supplies purchased.
