I teach for University of Utah Lifelong Learning and Salt Lake Community College with an awareness and sensitivity to the student’s individual needs. By providing a safe class environment on both an emotional and physical level. I help students meet their full potential as we explore the creative process, design and technique in the craft of metal-smithing.

Rings, Rings, Rings                 Min: 5   Cap:  8            

The ring as a human adornment is universal. A ring has many associations, can make powerful statements, and can also function solely as an object of beauty. Working with silver, copper or brass you will explore symbolism, design, the four major solder seams of silversmithing, fabrication, and stone setting techniques related to the ring. More advanced students will be encouraged to do overlay techniques. We will explore a ring's potential to be bold, symbolic, sentimental, and a reflection of beauty and health. Any level of student is welcome to take this workshop. Expect to pay minimum of $60 on supplies; materials will be discussed the first night of class. Cost will vary depending on the type of materials and stones chosen for your design. Class is limited to 8. Special fee is for first class materials, facility and tool rental.
