Creating with Castings

Friday, March 15, 2019
10am – 5pm (includes 1 hour lunch break)

Classroom: Coronado A
Class Fee: $170
Kit Fee: $35, pay teacher at class

Bring your own fine or sterling silver scraps (or purchase from the instructor) and melt them to create unique design components. Using a crucible and a torch, plus some household materials, we will create several organic shapes. Your favorite component(s) will be made into jewelry. Two pieces may be created as time allows, but you will have several components to take home.

All consumable materials (excluding sterling silver scraps) and tools for use will be provided.

Skill level: all levels





Rocks & Rings Cuff

Saturday, March 16, 2019
10am – 5pm (includes 1 hour lunch break)

Classroom: Coronado A
Class Fee: $170
Kit Fee: $75, pay teacher at class

Attach rings-to-rings, plus tube-set faceted stones in a random pattern to create a truly one-of-a-kind cuff. Use of positive/negative space as a design element, plus the economy provided by the pre-made jump rings, allows students to create larger pieces without the traditional limitations of cost and weight. Students will learn; designing with jump rings, soldering, stone setting, and finishing techniques.

All consumable materials and tools for use will be provided.

Skill level: intermediate





Fused Links Bracelet

Sunday, March 17, 2019
10am – 5pm

Classroom: Coronado A
Class Fee: $170
Kit Fee: $75, pay teacher at class

Create dramatically textured links by fusing sterling silver scraps to a silver base plate. Students will learn to fuse silver without melting – a huge cost and time saver! Embellish the central links with tube set bezels for an added touch of elegance. Students will create eight links which may be linked together to form a bracelet or statement necklace, or used individually to create pendants and/or earrings.

All consumable materials and tools for use will be provided.

Skill level: intermediate





Eva Sherman began beading as a way to spend time with her daughters but soon became hopelessly addicted. In 2005 she traded in her architectural career for the opportunity to spend all her time among beads, and opened Grand River Bead Studio in Cleveland, Ohio. Eva now happily spends most days in the studio creating, writing and teaching, but has been know to take her show on the road. She has discovered an affinity for working with wire and metals, and prefers to design in an organic and unstructured style. Eva has authored two books on jewelry design: “Organic Wire & Metal Jewelry” and “Cool Copper Cuffs”.
