Description

Students will learn how to how to create several types of rivets including a standard rivet, a flush rivet and a tube rivet.

We will also consider how each type of rivet can both enhance and perform the functions necessary to complete any project. Rivets are a great tool to use in jewelry because you can utilize them to not only connect metal, but other materials as well. This class is perfect for starting your own torch-less home studio practice.

Tools: Students are welcome to bring their own hand tools such as files, pliers, hammers and any non-ferrous scrap metal to use for each class.

Material/Kit fee: allow $5-$10 based on materials purchased from instructor.  Fee is due in cash to the instructor on the first day of class.

Non-Ferrous MetalsIn general practice, we group the softer metals and alloys as non-ferrous as many tools used are not designed for the harder (ferrous) metals. In metallurgy, non-ferrous metals are Copper, Silver, Gold, Tin, Zinc, Nickel, Aluminum, Titanium, Palladium, Niobium, Platinum, Lead. This also includes alloys that do not contain iron (ferrite) in appreciable amounts such as Brass, Bronze, Pewter, and more.
