In this ambitious class, students will be guided through a vast range of techniques while executing a design from concept to construction. (Students will not be required to make a flower as per the sample photo, but will be encouraged to think independently through guided question and lecture.) The primary focus will be on sawing and sweat soldering (hence the "cut and paste") as students learn to refine their piercing skills and work towards building up multiple levels of sterling silver into an intricate, complex design created from numerous simpler parts.

** Participants will be able to choose a ring or a pendant as their project structure. **
