Course description - Improve your ability to precisely layout and
systematically fabricate in silver and gold. Develop the skills to
reasonably solve any construction problems previously thought to be
"overwhelming, too complex or too tedious" to do in metal. The first
goal is to be come more efficient in producing an object through the
understanding and creative use of tools, soldering jigs, fabrication
techniques, and a few tricks to make it all easier. The second goal
is to understand how to develop strategies for more complex

curved), fasteners and custom clasp construction for jewelry. Open to
all levels of experience. Course ID: 2011 MTL-Jun19
