Create rich textures and distinctive patterns to give your jewelry new vibrancy and life. We will start by making a texture sample palette on a silver ring so that you have a wearable reference at your fingertips. Experiment with many direct methods of texturing: upsetting and distorting metal, precision cutting and carving, and freeform play. Apply those techniques to reveal endless avenues of exploration in surface depth and pattern. On Day 2, learn how to create custom stone settings for both faceted and cabochon stones, applying both functional and decorative textures.
