This workshop will explore several of the various methods of joining together different metals to create decorative designs.  We will work with copper and silver to make checkerboard designs as well as piercing the metal and inlaying a dissimilar metal or groupings of meals and join them with silver solder.  We will also cover simple solder inlay and overlay inlay. Flush wire inlay locked by mechanical means will provide you with endless embellishing possibilities on the surface of your metal.

Each participant will leave with a clear understanding of the process of married metals and will carry with them examples of what they learned for future reference.
