Silversmithing is the creation of objects from silver or other precious metals, using heat and tools, to create beautiful and unique pieces of jewelry. 

We offer a one day beginners class where jewelry designer Debbie Patapoff will teach you the skills you need to create finished jewelry.  You will learn how to cut your design, solder a bezel, set a cabochon, then polish the finished piece to a lustrous sparkle. Basic soldering techniques,  equipment safety,  and cleaning up will also be covered.   Students are welcome and encouraged to bring their own cabochons for their silversmithing projects.  You must be a CCGMA member to participate.
