ARGENTIUM BASICS & THE BEAUTY OF FUSING:
Why use Argentium sterling silver? Because it’s the whitest and brightest of all the alloys, you can fuse it, it’s tarnish resistant and no more firescale! This class is all about feeling comfortable fusing and understanding the magic of Argentium.
Design and make a project(s) that use any of the techniques I will demo: granulation, fused decorative lines, overlays and interesting textures using your metal filings. Learn how to fuse bezel and ring seams, and how you can fuse gold & other metals to your future designs! I will also discuss when to solder, creating a long-lasting tarnish resistant finish, and how to harden.
Beginners to advanced silversmiths are welcome! As long as you have taken a basic fabrication & soldering class.
2-day workshop: To be announced
One-on-one custom instruction: Is available in my private Park City, Utah studio.
Let’s discuss a project and techniques you want to learn. Contact me and we will make it happen!
