In this class, we'll explore those pesky rivets that never seem to turn out right and utilize a method that yields a great rivet every time. Plus we'll discuss and try out a few other cold connection options. At the end of class, you'll leave with at least 1 or 2 completed pieces and your own set of riveting tools and template.
All materials are provided in the cost of class.
About the teacher:
Chattanooga based artist, Janet Campbell Bradley, has been creating silver & gold jewelry for over 20 years. Currently located in Studio #4E at Chattanooga Workspace, she spreads her time between making art for galleries/art shows and teaching others how to create. Janet is a jeweler, sculptor, painter, gardener, and amazed admirer of nature. She believes that adornment should embellish the existing, natural beauty present in each person. To achieve this, she uses organic shapes and subtle finishes to create a peaceful ambiance. Precious and semi-precious materials unite in each piece, with a carefully applied patina to achieve a robust beauty with asymmetric balance that looks and feels immediately familiar yet entirely unique. Her designs always enhance the wearer quietly and respectfully, creating a feeling unlike any other jewelry.
