Gold Week with Jeanette K Caines

I love 22k gold! It’s my favorite metal to work in and you’ll know why after attending this week, my favorite intensive. I’ll teach you to alloy and prepare your gold for great fusing, soldering and granulation results. Then we will get down to all the tricks of making high karat gold jewelry. You will leave with greatly enhanced skills and handmade 22k jewelry. What could be better?
