Instructor: Francisco Garcia-Guevara

Learn the techniques behind an historic style of Mexican jewelry in one of Mexico's most beautiful cities. Our class will focus on joyeria pajarito or "little bird jewelry," a distinctively baroque style developed during Guanajuato's colonial period. Our instructor Francisco Garcia-Guevara is a master jeweler who learned the style from his own father. Students will work in silver to creative a pendant with several layers and elements, experiencing sandcasting, die-stamping, chasing, engraving, patination, and soldering. Prerequisite: Some silver soldering experience. 
Please note: Guanajuato is extremely hilly. This trip is not recommended for travelers who have difficulty climbing stairs or walking distances over uneven terrain.
