Learn to create ornate, fine wirework and improve your soldering skills! Filigree jewelry has a long history and is made all over the world, from Thailand to Norway.  In this class, you will learn how to make these graceful and intricate pieces yourself.  We will explore how to construct wire frames to create forms that are lightweight but strong. We'll then work with different soldering methods, including chip solder, paste solder, and dry powdered solder. You will leave with a pair of filigree earrings, a pendant, or both. $20 Materials Fee Payable to Instructor, cash or check
