Cold Connections: Beyond the Bezel

with Jan Harrell
Virtual Two day Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
June 17 & 24 | Time: 1:00-3:00p.m. ET
Learn imaginative ways to incorporate enamels and fragile found objects into your jewelry and small fabrications.
Instead of being limited to the traditional bezel, this fast-paced workshop will introduce you to the use of alternative cold connections – using taps and dies to create threaded connections, rivets, tubing and trap settings, micro screws – to name but a few.
These exercises will be especially appropriate for adding enamels to metal components but can also be used for any hard to set or fragile material. The many tips and tricks should make the fabricating process more pleasant or, at least, less painful. There will be a demo of each technique and then the student will be encouraged to practice that technique.
Some metals experience is helpful. The student needs basic metal fabricating hand tools. A supply list with additional tools will be provided.
