Closed Box Construction Workshop with Bev Fox.
Class Description: Take your jewelry to the next level. In this class you will learn to use the little torch with oxygen and acetylene to solder small, closed, hollow boxes of your design, including curves! Discover how to texture sidewalls, tops, bottoms, jump rings, and even bezels! Finish with stone-setting and delight of making yours a truly custom three-dimensional piece.
This pendant hangs from a chain through the box. Hinging two boxes together for movement and wear-ability will be demonstrated and available as an advanced project. These hinges are not as fussy as a locket and are fun to make. There will be a discussion period at the beginning of class, which will end with Q&A. Bev will be demonstrating every step
This is an intermediate class using the little torch with dual fuel. Basic soldering and sawing skills are required. Please bring the chain that will be used for the piece you are making. If you plan on a hole large enough to accommodate a large diameter chain and a small chain is used, it will not look proportional. Chains are not for sale, you must bring one to use for your design. If you want to use a stone, which is optional, please bring them with you.
