Silver I

Silver I – Pattie Appleby

William Holland – June 10-16, 2018

Time to hone those solder skills!  Our first project is a sterling silver CRAZY CHAIN!  During the week we will learn how to use the rolling mill, hydraulic press, and other tools in the studio!  We are also going to make a bezel by building a stone-set sterling silver wide band ring.  Then, let’s make a chunky filagree ring! And finish the week off with a stone-set pendant with a toggle closure.  And, of course, there will be fun, quick items to make during the week   I’m looking forward to seeing you soon!

FEE: lab fee is $60 and the class projects’ fee will be approximately $150-175


Pattie Appleby Bio

Pattie Appleby got a late start in the art world after a long career in the corporate world in human resources and raising a family.  Beginning to work with glass fusing, it was just a hop, and a jump to needing a frame for the beautiful pieces coming out of the kiln.  Thus was born a love of metalsmithing.  Having taught at Spruill Center for the Arts and SFMS and being an avid student,I have learned from some amazing artists and would love to share what I can with my students this year again at Wildacres.  Get ready to have some fun and make some beautiful pieces of art!  Don’t say you can’t because I know you can!
