Electroforming Gemstone Jewelry
Are you curious about the current trends in jewelry making that combine copper, semi-precious gemstones and organic objects into unique one-of-a-kind jewelry creations? Look no further than this innovative class through D.Lea Virtual Studio! Electroforming is a process that is making a comeback in contemporary jewelry art. In this two-hour workshop you will discover the potential for producing lightweight metal creations and take away skills for high production in your jewelry practice. Class time will include a demo on how to Electroform organic and non-organic materials and time will be given to create 2 pieces (pendants, rings, keychains).
*After class, students are responsible for mailing their work to the instructor for completion of the Electroforming process. Once completed, Instructor will return finished Electroformed work to students 4-5 days later. Electroforming is a time-based process (approx. 6-10 hours with proper chemistry and equipment). By enrolling in this class, students are aware of these expectations.
What is Electroforming?: A Beautiful Collaboration Between Art & Science!
Electroforming is the intricate process of controlling a metal deposit of copper onto a conductive surface through electrodeposition. The results are imperfect, always a bit experimental and can appear smooth and polished or textured and grooved depending on how long the pieces have been electroformed.
