Learn small-scale reductive techniques for creating jewelry forms such as beads, rings, and pendants, as well as cabochon- and cameo-style elements.

Pratt will have on hand some carving tools for class use, but students may want to provide their own small selection, and will receive guidance in class in choosing the right tools for their goals. Expect to leave with a range of samples and 1-2 wearable pieces. Prerequisite: None
