    This is THE class if you are interested in metalsmithing.

    Join local artist, Janet Ryan in this introductory metal smithing workshop. Create a sterling silver ring or pendant with a Lake Michigan beach stone or a cabochon. Students will learn the basic skills in design, bezel making, soldering and stone setting to create your one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry.  Rings will be designed with an adjustable ring setting.  All skill levels are welcome.  No experience is necessary.

    Students will need to purchase a kit from Janet at the class. Kits will include a beach stone or cabochon (there will be plenty of choices) and silver.  See materials list for more information.

    This class is required for Janet's Level 2 class where students will provide their own stone.

    Please bring a sack lunch and water.
