In this exciting 2 day workshop, students will learn simple techniques for casting Sterling silver, bronze, and gold or red alloys with the use of cuttlebone to create texture and design. Students will explore methods for creating different gauges of metal for fabricating a unique piece of jewelry. Each student will create a simple pendant and other castings to use in future jewelry designs.
Come and learn how to design and cast unique pieces in a process that is easily done at home with only a torch, crucible, casting flux and various colors of casting grains and alloys.
Once students grasp the steps in this EASY casting technique, this can be done from pristine cuttlebone to metal casting in your hand, in about 45 minutes!!
Finished pieces can be used in all kinds of jewelry designs. Judy Brown has taken this style of metal casting to an art form rarely seen which is both elegant and very appealing.
