Course Overview 

In this introductory course, students will learn the basics for forming and fabricating jewellery through three projects: a ring, chain necklace, and a broach or pendant. Students will be introduced to the basic tools and techniques of jewellery making, working in copper, brass, and silver. Forming and surface embellishments will be taught throughout the course, informing students of the properties of metals and expanding their design potential. Students will be encouraged to make samples to explore various techniques of forming as well, which they can incorporate into their finished pieces.
