Becoming a master goldsmith takes years of study and decades of work. Making a finished piece of jewelry is, however, more accessible than one might realize. We take you through the ground steps; melting and alloying metal, pouring an ingot, rolling the ingot thru a mill to make sheet or wire. From there, we work with the material we created to saw, file, shape, and solder the elements into a piece of jewelry. When fabrication is complete, we sand, polish, or patina the work to create a finished piece.
If you have an idea of something you would like to make, please reach out and we can discuss the possibilities and time requirements. If you just want to try your hand at this, we have options for projects that can be completed in the 3- or 12- hour workshops. If the gold crucifix Aunt Doris gave you for your first communion is still collecting dust, we can melt it and make something better.
