Archaic Alchemy Cuff

Explore two exciting metals- titanium and argentium, as we combine them with stones and pearls in a dramatic cuff. Titanium will be heat treated to achieve vibrant colors ranging from gold, magenta, purples and blues. We will top off this colorful base with argentium elements: a bezel set cabochon using thick wall construction and fused embellishments, such as granules and wire. Accent your design with pearls for the finishing touch! The workshop will cover texturing, soldering, riveting, patina, post-set pearls, roller printing, forming and finishing. Expand your horizons with the colorful titanium and tarnish resistant Argentium Sterling Silver!         

BIO: My hand crafted one-of-a-kind jewelry is all fabricated in my studio in Uptown Yucaipa, California. I am a self-taught metalsmith who has conducted workshops for several years. I now travel the country as an "artist in residence", sharing my knowledge, meeting amazing people, and immersing myself in everything this spinning blue rock has to offer!
