Work with G. Phil Poirier as he uses the Bonny Doon master forming kit with its array of dies, the vertical vise and the urethane forming hammer to create lightweight and affordable sterling silver hoop earrings. See how effective the urethane hammer is for forming metal—even relatively fragile metal—without distorting the metal and how effective the shaped dies are for creating synclastic and anticlastic forms. These earrings show off those smooth, beautiful curves and offer a very attractive price point for customers.
