Soldering Intensive Bootcamp: Chains, Findings, and Hoops

May 25 + 26 | Sat & Sun | 11am-5pm | $260 Register Now!

Handmade chains are works of art – each link is individually created, so like snowflakes, they are similar, never identical. Choose between different gauges and shapes of wire such as round, squared, flat and triangle. Learn how to shape and form the links, to solder and join them, and how to shine, oxidize or add texture to create dimension. We finish with a handmade clasp.

We will also use the technique of link making to create hoop earrings, and get a soldering workout with posts, earring wires, headpins and other basic findings that you can make.

Soldering takes a little practice and getting used to controlling the flow and volume of heat from the torch.
