In jewelry making, there’s a lot of ways to attach your metals together.  Cold connections are great alternatives to soldering, especially if you want to combine mixed media such as wood, ceramics, plastics, paper, fibers and more.  A lot of found objects and thinner metals cannot be heated, so if you’re interested in incorporating objects such as these, cold connections are the way to go.   There are so many cool techniques including: rivets, tabs, staples, settings, stitching AND students will learn other jewelry techniques such as sawing, forming, carving and finishing. This class is perfect for beginners to metal and jewelers who want to expand their skills and material repertoire.  Check out our Pinterest Board for some really cool inspiration!
