With over 20 years of experience, Kristin has been teaching classes for beginning to advanced students and every level in between. Beginning classes include silversmithing techniques centered around ring-making such as sizing, soldering, texturing, chasing, forming, and bezel-setting a cabochon stone. Advanced classes include the continuation of these techniques and the exploration of reticulation, riveting, pitch bowls, marriage of metals, and other traditional metalsmithing techniques.


The Shirley Family completed a Ringmaking/Silver Soldering class, then a follow-up studio workshop.  See what happens when The Shirleys get busy in their workshop at home!
