Filigree Techniques

Learn to create beautiful silver wirework jewelry and improve your soldering skills! Filigree jewelry is made all over the world, from Thailand to Norway to Mexico and everywhere in between. In this class, you will learn how to make these graceful and intricate pieces yourself. We will explore how to construct sterling silver wire frames to create forms that are lightweight but strong. We'll then explore different soldering methods to fill the frames with fine filigree wires. Students will have the opportunity to experiment with chip solder, paste solder, and dry powdered solder. You will leave with a pair of filigree earrings, a pendant, or both. This is an intermediate-level course; some experience with soldering is required.
