Introduction to Jewelry Making: Stacked Rings
Taught by Alicia Goodwin
Alicia Goodwin is the designer behind the sculptural organic jewelry line Lingua Nigra. Although her line is a over a decade old, she has been in the jewelry industry since 2003. Working as both a product developer and also a graphic jewelry designer, Alicia has worked for many fashion houses, including C. Wonder, Tory Burch,Kate Spade and Juicy Couture.
With her own line she plays with texture and the complexity of random creation to bring spirit to each piece of jewelry.
A creator at heart she loves to share her knowledge of everything jewelry by teaching both hands on classes and also computer aided design throughout New York.
In this class, we'll create our own set of sterling silver, copper and brass stacking rings from start to finish. We'll learn to measure, form, and solder the rings, then finish them by creating a hammered texture, oxidized finish, or a high polish.
Everyone will leave with a set (2-3) of their very own handmade rings, like the below!
