Taylor Saleem Jewelry Studio
1262 Pennsylvania Ave.
University City, MO 63130
Join me to style, shape, and add a stone to your own stack of unique rings! We'll explore basic techniques in the relaxed atmosphere of my home studio that will help you become kitchen table metalsmiths.
Together we will:
-shape and texture rings on a mandrel
-solder a pre-made bezel to a ring
-set a stone and add patina
Prior jewelry experience is not necessary - only an imagination, willingness to make mistakes, learn from them, and have fun together.
Sterling silver wire, solder, stones’and components will be provided.
Coffee and lunch will be provided. Please bring something to drink.
Sound good? Ok, keep reading...
To provide the best teaching time and detail possible, space will be limited to 6-8 participants. If this class becomes sold out and you would like to be added to a wait list or second class date, please send me an email.
Class fee: $160
In order to secure your space, an $80 non-refundable deposit is required. The balance can be paid any time before or the day of the workshop. If you need to cancel for any reason, I request a 48 hour notice so that participants from the waiting list can be notified.
If you have them (or are interested in purchasing them*) please bring:
-needle nose pliers
-a jeweler's butane micro torch
-a steel ring mandrel
*Most of these items can be purchased online from www.riogrande.com, www.firemountaingems.com, or locally from Lady Bug Beads, Michael's or Joann's. I will have tools and torches available for shared use, but be willing to be patient with each other.
If you have ANY questions or concerned, please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can't wait to make jewelry with you!
