The construction of a basic band ring is simple yet does present some challenges. The ring must fit, be comfortable and, of course, beautiful! This quick ring class will focus on the construction of a texturized and fabricated band ring. Measuring, cutting, chasing and embossing for texture, as well as soldering and some forming techniques will be covered. Every student will leave class with a handsome, well-made ring that fits! No experience necessary.
- Sterling silver sheet and wire to produce a band ring or two
Dana Cassara began practicing the art of silversmithing at North Seattle Community College in 1992. She discovered her love for the craft after returning to school to pursue a teaching degree with a focus in social studies. She graduated from the University of Washington in 1998 with a B.A. in Comparative History of Ideas as well as Interdisciplinary Arts, because she just couldn’t stay out of the art department. She has been teaching jewelry design since 1999 and loves what she does.
Her aim as an instructor is to guide individuals through the learning process offering solid technical information, personalized attention, and lots of fun. With the intention of setting students on the path towards transforming their ideas into solid form, she hopes students will take the experience they gain in this studio beyond the classroom into their everyday life where problem solving skills and a profound sense of achievement always come in handy!
