Silver I – Pattie Appleby
William Holland – June 11-17, 2017
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!
