Tuition: $395 (materials kit $25)

Instructor: Chris Darway

A jewelry designer only needs about three mechanisms for their work. In this three-day workshop, students will make multiple styles and variants of mechanisms. Join Chris Darway as he shows us how to create screw catches, compression fits, spring captures and pins. He’ll also uncover measuring tips and tricks for making jigs for wire bending and tool mods. Some projects will be the form of kits (precut pieces) to speed the class along. Two projects will include soldering stainless-steel cable for a bracelet and necklace. Soldering, sawing and a good eye are needed skills.

What To Bring: Students need to bring a basic tool box with files, sanding sticks, saw frame and blades, pliers and standard tools. Tool rental will also be available for a fee of $50 (paid to the studio). Students are recommended to bring their own metal, however, metal sheets will be available for purchase from the studio for an extra fee. If bringing your own, you’ll need silver sheets of 22Gauge - 2 inch x 3 inch and 18Gauge - 2 inch x 3 inch.

Materials Kit Fee: $25 (paid to the instructor) This kit will provide students with pre-cut parts needed to complete the project.

Prerequisite: Fabrication and Soldering Level 1 or previous experience.
