Make it Yours: Unique Chain

Working with copper and silver, students will learn various chain-making methods and how to adapt them. By playing with what’s around us, exploring beyond the jump ring, and sharing discoveries, we’ll expand design possibilities and develop unique chain. Techniques covered will include basic chain-making, soldering, cold connections, and variations of wire, sheet, loop-in-loop, bar, forged, and dimensional chain. We’ll also explore clasps, alternative materials, and finishings. Design exercises will spur ideas and experimentation. Students will leave with a trove of new chain samples and some finished chain. All levels. Upper metals studio
