In this five-lesson class, best-selling author and teacher Kate Richbourg shows you how to fill, light and adjust your torch and use it to shape, secure and finish metal jewelry. You'll learn how to size rings perfectly and how to choose the right materials. Then Kate shows you her signature stack ring set and a perfect band ring made from half-round silver wire. Get fired up!
Welcome to your free Craftsy class.
Meet your instructor, Kate Richbourg, and learn why it can be so fun and easy to work with micro torches! Then learn about Kate's background in beading and metalsmithing as you prepare to start your first project.
Working with torches might seem scary at first, but Kate takes all the fear out by comparing different micro torches and explaining how they work. Using the Blazer and Max Flame models, Kate shows how to fill them with butane, fire them up and adjust the flame to the best length.
