In this introduction to soldering you will learn how to set up a safe soldering station in your home studio. You will learn jewelry and small object soldering techniques as practiced in a professional studio. You will learn to construct a pendant with hollow elements and a suitable chain to suspend it from, as well as a pair of earrings to complement the pendant. We will cover simple forming and construction techniques for the pendant and precision soldering to assemble the chain. The goal is to understand the appropriate method to create a solid and functional piece of jewelry.
Note: Students should have a work area sufficiently ventilated for soldering and torch work. Your work area should allow for the safe operation, use, and storage of soldering materials during and after remote instruction through the program.
PrerequisitesStudents must be an adult age 18 or older to participate.
