Meet metalsmith and jewelry artist Lisa Colby as you get started making metal jewelry with dimension! First, learn how to cut and texture discs for an articulated necklace. Then, forge and drill bar links and connect everything together with dynamic heat rivets for a surprising design element!
Follow along with Lisa as you create a circular copper pendant that's custom-textured to your liking. Learn how to form and attach a textured bail and watch Lisa's techniques for dapping and attaching a gorgeous saucer using the riveting technique you learned in Lesson 1.
Start fold-forming with Lisa's approachable technique! You'll learn how to create a crisp crease in your sheet metal and add texture with a riveting hammer. Lisa shows you how to anneal work-hardened pieces until they're soft enough to open, revealing beautiful leaf shapes. You'll even double fold-forms, which can be transformed into earrings, brooches or anything else!
