A Workshop with Leslie Perrino

Fused Silver Loop Earrings with Leslie Perrino, Feb. 11, 2018

Fee: $90/ $80 members (all materials included)
Registration: Registration is closed. For info on future sessions, sign up for our email newsletter.

Fusing is an ancient technique used to permanently connect precious metals, in this case, fine (pure) silver wire. Cleaner, faster, and less toxic than soldering, fusing involves the use of a hand torch. Leslie Perrino will show you how to fuse fine silver wire into loops that can then be made into earrings complete with earwires. Once you master the techniques, you will have time to make more earrings. No experience required, this workshop is suitable for complete beginners or those looking to expand their jewelry-making skills. All materials and tools supplied. You are welcome to bring beads to add to your earrings.
