“Swirly Girl Silver Bracelet Cuff” with Nancy Sacco
June 29 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm$120.00
We are excited to welcome Nancy Sacco to our artist instructed classes as BrainVessel Gallery. This class is sure to be fun and you will walk away with a pretty sterling silver bracelet that YOU make.
Students will learn how to measure for a good cuff fit, file, form and hammer wire pieces. You will then solder the pieces together with silver solder using a small butane torch. The cuff will be hammered to shape on a bracelet mandrel and then tumbled for a beautiful shine. Nancy will provide each student with a template and written instructions. No experience required. Age is 18 and up due to use of torch. All materials are provided. Tea service from the Teafinery at BrainVessel provided and complimentary dessert by Renee Napoli.
No alcohol allowed in this class due to working with the torch. Also, class stipulations are as follows: no open toed shoes, long hair must be tied back, no loose/flowy clothing and must be 18 or older.
A second class with Nancy will be held the end of July that will involve making earrings to go with the swirly girl bracelet cuff!
