Here’s an update on our Rolling Mill Workshop.
August 2-3, 2008 9AM-6PM, at Montrose, PA. Montrose is in
This is a 2 day intensive workshop with the Rolling Mill Master, Jay
Whaley. Jay will be teaching us how to take 24K Gold & Fine Silver &
alloy them to 18K & 14K Gold, & Sterling Silver. We will then melt
the alloys and pour them into sheet & wire ingot molds.
Using the Rolling Mill, the ingots will be rolled into our choice of
thickness & shape to create various sheet & wire products. We will
then make finished Jewelry of our choice with our newly created Gold
or Silver sheet & wire products which we created from scratch!
This Workshop will teach us how to make our own sheet & wire stock
without having to wait on an order from a supplier for a particular
piece. This is also an excelllent way to recycle Gold & Silver scrap
& not have to send it out to the refiner.
Student packets for the class will be going out shortly. We only
have room for a total of 10 students, so if you are interested,
please contact me as soon as possible. You may contact me off-list.
