ONLINE WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Create a one-of-a-kind key clasp to unify your art jewelry. Students make a front key clasp necklace with stainless steel neck wire fabricating terminals and soldering sterling to stainless steel cable. Students are encouraged to go with their own design inclinations and to explore new ideas in creating cohesive finished jewelry. Clasps can be textured, chased, roller printed, etched, domed, hydraulic press shapes, with stones, with enamel…the variety is endless as you come up with your own solutions.

We’ll discuss possibilities for customizing your clasp to fit your designs. Students are welcome to show projects in need of a clasp and we’ll trouble shoot the situation. This class is meant to get you thinking about connections, functional, practical and aesthetic aspects of use. Step--step handouts are supplied. Samples will be shown.

Basic fabrication including knowledge of soldering is required.
