In this one-day workshop you’ll learn how to work with Argentium®, a special silver alloy that doesn’t tarnish and offers other amazing properties that are different from sterling. You’ll discover how to fuse wire into circles, hearts, teardrops, and all sorts of spirals and squiggles, then fuse to sheet metal, all without using solder! You’ll experiment with granulation, the ancient goldsmithing technique of fusing tiny balls onto a back plate, which can be difficult with sterling but magical with Argentium®. Come to class, fall in love with Argentium®, and walk away with a pendant, a pair of earrings, or possibly both. Masks required.
