Etch a sheet of sterling silver using electro etch techniques. We will discuss and use several methods of resists that will hold up to the etching process for silver. When our etching is complete we will select several shapes, cut them out from the sheet, dap them for dimension and make ear wires to match.
Materials provided by the instructor for up to three pair of earrings depending on size. You will receive one piece of sterling silver 3” x 4” in your kit along with 12” of 20g sterling silver wire. Additional materials will be available for purchase.
