Use these experiences to design and make your very own silver ring. The course is presented in 3 projects that develop technical skills while also encouraging experimentation and design development.
- Project 1 – Experimental approaches to texturing and pattern making on metal
- Project 2 – Experimental approaches to forming and shaping metal
