Class Fee: $75.00

Create a trio of hand forged bangles with riveted focals starting with just raw metal and a hammer. Learn sizing equations and measuring, metal working, hammer and texture techniques, and get hands on time with the incredible Crafted Findings piercing and riveting tool. Choose from two wire colors which you will texture and age, then hammer stations for your focals, and pierce and rivet those into place. Class will cover hand finishing, tools, polishes, and sealers.

All supplies are provided for this workshop, which will include brass and silver (tinned copper) wire, selected focals in solid brass, hand cast bronze, and sterling clad pewter.

2 ounce ball peen hammer  *
