This is the perfect class for any beach lover! You will learn how to make a ring and set a piece of beach glass in silver. You will learn techniques such as sawing, filing, soldering, and bezel setting. We will provide a selection of beach glass for you to choose from, but if you have a few favorite pieces that you love, we can figure out which one will work best for this project. Participants will wear their own handmade piece of jewelry out the door!
