Class Description

Take your work to the next level with that perfect final finish in this 5 session surface intensive course. Explore the potential for different metal surface treatments and learn what to look for with various polishing compounds, sanding grits, and how to control your tools for maximum consistency. Polishing will be taught with flex shaft attachments and the polishing machine.

Students will work on practice rings, bringing each one up to a different finish: high polish, satin finish, and a textured finish of their choice. Students have the option to bring in a jewelry piece of their own making for help problem solving their intended surface finish. This course will get you set up with the knowledge and the tools to continue creating the intentional surfaces your designs deserve.

This class is for beginner and intermediate level jewelers; students with prior metalsmithing experience. To take this course students are expected to have basic familiarity with jewelry making processes. Our Welcome to Jewelry class offers this introduction.

Class size 4 – 6 students.

Supply kits for this class are available for purchase through our Tool Shop.
