Silver Chain Bracelet with a toggle Bar Clasp.
During this workshop you will learn how to make and solder jump rings, assembling them into a bracelet with a toggle style clasp.
You will use the techniques of sawing, filing and soldering to assemble a beautiful stylish and simple chain bracelet. There is an opportunity to texture your links and add charms if you have something you would like to attach.
Your bracelet will be joined with a Toggle Style clasp. This is a very nice way to finish off your bracelet with your own hand made clasp.
No experience is necessary for you to have fun. You will learn how to use a LPG torch to solder, you will use a Jewellers saw and scribe to mark out and cut your metal. You will also use hand tools such as pliers, hand files and precision hammers.
The cost of this workshop will be $180 inclusive of all your materials. We will practice some soldering with brass wire to build your confidence and get you ready for your Sterling Silver Piece.
