My Current Class Schedule at Quench Jewelry Art
May 30th - Love Knots
In this new class instructor Aisha Formanski will show you how to use fine silver wire to create these sweet Love Knot Rings. Students will learn to tie a knot using wire, size their ring, solder a small seam, and finish to a high shine. Some soldering experience would be helpful, but is not necessary.

My Class at Peninsula School of Art
July 10-12th - Surface Exploration in Stamps, Fusing, and Silver Dusting
In this multifaceted workshop, you will explore three metalsmithing techniques with a different focus each day. With an emphasis on developing texture and design, you will have the opportunity to conceptualize and fabricate rings, bracelets, earrings, and pendants while learning new processes.
This workshop will begin with learning how to size, form, and solder sterling silver stacking rings or a spinner ring. An emphasis will be placed on surface texture using metal stamps and hammers. On day two, you will discover the differences between soldering and fusing, as you cut, shape, and fuse fine silver wire into a bracelet or pair of earrings. And on day three, take advantage of your filings and small silver scrap from the week to form and fuse a beautifully textured pair of earrings and/or pendant. You will also have the option to include a bezel set stone in your design. Registration and class details can be found HERE.
