Electroforming Cuff Bracelet – Part I
April 11, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT
“Cuff Bracelet” focuses on using previously electroformed components in a construction of a cuff. This design features electroformed flowers and Victorian charms. I have used cabochon beads, semi-precious stones, ceramic faces, electroformed lizards, or anything your imagination desires. These techniques will take your work to “the next level”!
This class is designed to use non-reactive elements such as glass cabochon and cubic zirconia gems and conductive elements such as brass or copper charms, previously electroformed items on a brass or copper base. Additional skills will include the manipulation of a curved surface to accommodate the design.
“Electroformed Cuff Bracelet” Part 1 is all about assembling the cuff and preparing conductive elements to easily fit onto the cuff. Reinforcing electroformed components is discussed and two options are shared with students. Proper cuff fitting is discussed and demonstrated.
