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.

Dana Cassara began practicing the art of silversmithing at North Seattle Community College in 1992. She discovered her love for the craft after returning to school to pursue a teaching degree with a focus in social studies. She graduated from the University of Washington in 1998 with a B.A. in Comparative History of Ideas as well as Interdisciplinary Arts, because she just couldn't stay out of the art department. She has been teaching jewelry design since 1999 and loves what she does.
