Fabrication 3 begins with a concentration in hand fabricated chains and clasps. Students will forge, saw, hammer, twist, texture and/or solder copper wire to create two or more chains. We will then work on bezel setting skills by creating a bezel cup for a large or free form cabochon stone. After an exploration of design principles and practice, the bezel cup can be used in the creation of a pendant, ring, bracelet or piece of your choice.
Class fee of $225.00 includes all materials to make copper link chains and a copper bezel cup. Tools are provided for use. Additional materials, gemstones and sterling silver are available for purchase.
Fab 3 is for students who have taken Fabrication 1 & Fabrication 2.
