Additional Information
Description:
From one angle, it’s a clean brushed bar of silver -- substantial and smooth. From another, it’s the dimensional glamour and sparkle of a rose-cut gem. Then there’s the rustic pattern on the front and back, slightly tarnished with texture that’s visual and tactile, and slightly worn. It comes together in a surprisingly lightweight and comfortable bit of sculpture for your hand, different from every perspective -- a bit like you.
Students will Learn:
Each hollow-form ring grows proportionally out of a custom-fitted ring band, finished with a mixture of techniques, and embellished with a selection of delicate rose-cut gemstones. Students will make use of a full range of traditional and “kitchen table” techniques, including sawing, soldering, filing, polishing, and tube setting.
