    Are you ready to make a piece of jewelry that is more complex and refined?

    In this class, you will apply the fabrication techniques and tools that you already know to create one or more pieces of your own design. The instructor will help you evaluate your design; create a pattern; identify materials; outline the steps needed to make your piece; and coach you through the process of completing it.

    Bring your design ideas and any materials you have to the first class. A limited variety of materials will be available for purchase: sterling silver sheet and wire as well as copper and brass sheet and wire.

    This class is for people with intermediate fabrication skills.

    Participants should plan on attending Open Studios between classes.

    Supplies Needed:

    • Towels for drying your hands and metal.
    • Please bring the materials you will use to make your project, as well as graph paper, pencil, and other drawing materials.

    Details:

    • Prerequisites: You must be able to solder independently and demonstrate the ability to complete a finished piece of jewelry that includes multiple components that you have made by hand. 
    • Please click here for BARN's current COVID-19 health & safety protocols.

    Instructor:

    Joan Hammond began working in metal in 1994 when she started taking metalsmithing classes as an antidote to documenting computer software. What she discovered was a medium that not only utilized her previous training in painting, printmaking, and ceramics but also opened the possibilities of creating art that can be worn. Family artifacts and history, plants and animals, and the textiles and jewelry of non-Western cultures inspire her current work, which she executes using various fabrication techniques, including chasing and repoussé.

    Hammond exhibits locally and nationally, and her work has been published in Metalsmith magazine’s Exhibition in Print. She is a member of the Seattle Metals Guild; has served on the Board of Northwest Designer craftsmen; and co-chaired a national conference for the Society of North American Goldsmiths. She is currently the Lead for the Jewelry and Fine Metals Studio at BARN.

    This two-session introduction to the art of inlay covers traditional techniques to create modern, contemporary designs.

    Make a pendant of sterling silver and learn how to cut lapidary material for inlay. You have several pendant shapes to choose from. We'll discuss what goes into creating an inlay design, and learn setting and polishing techniques.

    Your kit will include enough sterling silver to make three small pendants or one or two larger pendants. If you only finish one in class, you will have enough material left to practice during future open studios.

    Day 1: Fabrication. Because you already know how to fabricate bezels, a quick/ lite version of a demo is offered. Then you start your inlay - cutting and assembling.

    Day 2: Continue inlay work and finish your new pendant.

    Materials Needed:

    • Please bring a selection of rocks to use in your work. Rocks are not  provided in your materials kit.
    • Think about color combinations you want to use.
    • Try and pick rock material that is around the same hardness on the MOHS scale.

    Prerequisite: 

    • Lapidary Series: Points, Curves, & Facets. A class begins Jan. 12.
    • Intermediate soldering and fabrication skills. We have several fabrication classes on the schedule to sharpen your skills and speed in advance.

      Details:

      • Level: Intermediate
      • A $45 materials fee is included in the price of the class.

                  Jewelry molds photo courtesy Jody LyleIf you've ever wanted two or more of the same piece, injectable molds are a great way to go. In this class, we make silicone molds that can be injected with wax to make duplicates.

                  The waxes can then be cast later in one of our lost wax casting classes or independent casting sessions.

                  One day one, we sprue two objects, and mix and pour the RTV material. On day two, we cut the molds and inject them with wax.

                  Supplies Needed

                  • Please bring several small simple pieces of your own original work, carved waxes, non-copyrighted objects, or a piece of nature you might want to mold (no rubber or hollow objects). Bring options to choose from!

                  • If you have no casting experience at BARN, we recommend taking Lost Wax Casting. This class fills quickly, so don’t delay enrolling!

                  Add stone setting to your jewelry-making repertoire by learning how to make a bezel setting and how to set a cabochon stone.

                  You will wrap bezels, solder, fabricate a ring and set a round or oval cabochon stone. This is a great class if you want to learn how to add colorful stones to your work and increase your fabricating skills.

                  This is the first in the 2023 Stone Setting class series. It is a prerequisite for some of the stone setting classes that follow, because it introduces you to basic concepts and soldering techniques that will be built upon throughout the series.

                    This introduction to the process of lost wax casting, starting with a wax piece and finishing with a metal piece, uses an assortment of waxes and materials.

                    Students learn the basic skills of creating models. General information and some history on different methods of lost wax casting are covered - from the creation of a model to the completion of the metal casting. Some hands-on time is included to make a model, then students sprue and invest their model.

                    Pieces are burned out in time for the second class, when metal is poured. Also covered are techniques of cleaning up and finishing metal casting .

                    Note that while different waxes are introduced, this is not a wax carving class.

                    Create three-dimensional geometric designs and figurative drawings from a flat sheet of metal using these techniques.

                    About this Class

                    This class explores chasing and repoussé techniques. You’ll learn methods for transferring a line drawing onto sheet metal. Then, following the pattern or drawing on your metal, you’ll create dimension by “pushing” the raised portions of your design from the back of the metal using repoussé punches. From the front side, you’ll complete the design by refining the shapes, and adding texture and detail using chasing tools.

                    Details

                    • Skill Level: Beginning to intermediate
                    • A $10 materials fee is included in the cost of the class

                    Project

                    You will transfer a line drawing to form a pattern and then create a raised design on metal.

                    Materials

                    Students should bring:

                    • Towels for drying metal and hands
                    • Ball point pen, notebook, Ultra Fine Point Sharpie or other pen that writes on metal
                    • Optional: Dremel engraving tool, chasing and repoussé tools, chasing hammer, pitch bowl, heat gun

                    Prerequisites

                    Instructor

                    Joan Hammond began working in metal in 1994, when she started taking metalsmithing classes as an antidote to documenting computer software. What she discovered was a medium that not only used her training in painting, printmaking, and ceramics, but also opened the possibilities of creating art that can be worn. Family artifacts and history, plants and animals, and the textiles and jewelry of non-Western cultures inspire her current work, which she executes using various fabrication techniques, including chasing and repoussé.

                    Hammond exhibits locally and nationally. Her work has been published in Metalsmith magazine’s Exhibition in Print. She is a member of the Seattle Metals Guild.

                    Rings Tube Setting photo courtesy J. LyleAdd faceted gemstones to your work by setting small to medium stones using the flex-shaft, burs, files, burnishers, and pushers.

                    Choose from a selection of jewelry items like a ring, pendant, or tie pin. A tube setting is similar to a bezel setting, which makes this a natural introduction to faceted stone setting. This type of setting holds the stone securely by compressing the tube walls down over the outer edge of the stone while supporting from beneath.

                    Tube setting can be a quick, reliable, and versatile addition to your growing jewelry techniques.This class focuses on the mechanics of securing a faceted stone and on the process of setting that stone, although we talk about materials and building options. This isn’t a fabricating class, but you should go home with a finished product to keep or gift. It can be a challenging class, so it is recommended that you take the basic bezel class, but it is open for all who are interested.

                    Learn traditional inlay techniques to create modern, contemporary designs in this two-session introduction to the art of inlay.

                    Make a ring made of sterling silver and learn how to cut lapidary material for inlay. Choose from several ring shapes, discuss what goes into creating an inlay design, and learn setting and polishing techniques.

                    Your kit will include enough sterling silver to make two small rings or one larger ring. If you only finish one during class, enough material will be left to practice during future open studio sessions.

                    Day 1: Fabrication. Because you already know how to fabricate bezels and ring shanks, a quick/ lite version of a demo is offered. Then start your inlay - cutting and assembling.

                    Day 2: Continue inlay work and finish your new pendant.

                    Materials Needed:

                    • Please bring a selection of rocks you would like to use. Rocks are not  provided in your materials kit.

                      About this Class

                      Further develop your stone-setting skills by learning how to set faceted stones in thick wall settings. 

                      About this Class

                      You will learn to set faceted stones using the tools of the trade in this skills class. We will be setting round- and square- (princess cut) faceted stone in thick wall settings using gravers, burs, files, punches, and pushers. This is a type of tube or bezel setting, but you will be using more advanced-level tools to prep the seat and move the metal. These skills come in very handy if you want to set stones in a stiffer material like 14k gold, or carved bezels, and if you want to set faceted stones that have corners. The techniques learned in this class will improve your faceted stone-setting understanding and skills. This isn’t a fabrication class and we will be setting stones in prepared settings.

                      Details

                      • The $44 materials fee included in the cost of the class covers everything you need. Materials students can bring are listed below.

                      Add stone setting to your jewelry-making repertoire by learning how to make a bezel setting and set a cabochon stone.

                      About this Class

                      You will wrap bezels, solder, fabricate a ring and set a round or oval cabochon stone. This is a great class if you want to learn how to add colorful stones to your work and increase your fabricating skills.

                      This is the first in the 2023 Stone Setting class series. It is prerequisite for most of the stone setting classes that follow, because it introduces you to basic concepts and soldering techniques that will be built upon throughout the series.
