Dauphin Island Heritage and Arts Council


Create dynamic patterns by fusing argenitum silver!  In this workshop, you will focus on two processes: fusing and working with the properties of argentium. You will melt argentium silver to form patterns and fuse them to an articulated argentium backplate. Processes in this workshop will include designing, doming, fusing, sanding, finishing, applying a patina, and making ear wires. In-depth demos and techniques will be shown. Improve your skills, add value, and get comfortable with working with argentium silver, the silver that resists tarnishing.  Leave the workshop with the earrings you made by hand!

Bring: Eyeglasses if needed or magnifying glasses. Wear closed toed shoes and preferably long pants.

Cost:  $90 per person – all materials provided
