In this workshop you will learn the technique of fusing 22K gold onto fine silver and the methods that allow you to apply it to Sterling Silver. This technique allows you to have more control over where the detail of your design will be accentuated with the application of gold
You can bring one of your already completed pieces that you want to embellish with gold accents. Your finished piece can be Sterling Silver.
This is a fun workshop that will allow your creativity to flourish with the gold accents.
