Intensive 5 day Granulation workshop using Argentium .940 with Ronda Coryell
Class Date: July 22nd to July 26th
Time: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Instructor: Ronda Coryell
In this five-day class, students will be shown the technology and techniques required to work with Argentium Sterling Silver. Students will learn the processes of fusing, fabrication, and granulation, without using solder.
Argentium is a special silver alloy that is tarnish-resistant, fuses well and offers other amazing properties that are different from sterling.
Students learn the process of granulation by fusing. Individual designs encouraged. Demonstrations are followed by hands-on experience to create and finish four projects: a pair of earrings, a pendant with bezel and cabochon, a granulated ring and Keum Boo earrings. (Keum Boo – 24kt Gold foil will be applied using Keum Boo, an ancient Korean gilding technique that combines heat and pressure.)
Ronda Coryell is a Jewelers of America Certified Master Bench Jeweler and one of the world’s most well regarded experts on the use of Argentium Silver. Learn more about Ronda on her website.
