Have you ever wondered how to get color into your jewelry? In this workshop, we will figure out just that! We will cover proper enameling techniques for Sift and Fire, as well as wet packing enamel for Champleve, and Cloisonné. The workshop will concentrate a lot on making test samples, while participants will also walk away with a silver enameled ring that will be provided as a canvas for you to enamel on. You are encouraged to bring any and all projects that you are working on and you will have two one-on-one consultations with the instructor. Participants will also leave this workshop with a basic understanding on how to set up an enameling studio at home.
