Design + Technique Inspiration

Our Intermediate level silversmithing: design and technique class is coming up next week (starts November 6th!), so naturally we’ve been browsing pinterest for some inspiration. Check out the pictures below for some techniques that we will be going over in class, such as braiding and twisting wires, stone setting, piercework/design using the sawframe, and surface texturization using hammers, stamps and burs. This is a really great class for anyone looking to expand and develop their design skills and technical repertoire.

To the pics!
