This is a class that will explore purchasing rough materials and how to cut and use it in your finished jewelry. The first 2 days will be at the Denver Gem and mineral show. We will purchase rough material, Michael will introduce you to some of his favorite dealers and as a class, we will explore different shows, materials, what to look for, what to avoid and find our new and next favorite dealers. We will be based out of a Denver studio which is conveniently located near the gem shows. There we will be set up with lapidary equipment for an initial examination of our purchased materials. Along with rough materials, we will find finished materials that can be repurposed and altered.
For the second part of the class students will spend 3 days in the studios at the Colorado Center for Metal Arts in Pueblo. Students will be cutting, refining and finishing our materials in a manner you will use in finished jewelry.
