We have all of the required items for Metals 1 in the office, if you cannot find them online or locally. Call us and we can get your supplies together BEFORE your workshop begins and you can pay for those items over the phone. You may choose a stone and bezel wire after the first day, if needed.
We encourage you to obtain your supplies well in advance of your workshop.
