Ronda Coryell brings you the most sought-after DVDs on working with amazing Argentium® Silver. This DVD is the fourth in a series designed to teach a variety of techniques in Argentium Silver. In Volume 4, Ronda shares techniques for incorporating gold into your Argentium® Silver designs.
In the first disc of this two-disc tutorial, she covers alloying gold; making gold dust and fusing it to Argentium Silver sheet; making gold bezels and fusing to Argentium; making bezels from Argentium tubing and setting them, as well as tips on setting faceted stones; and granulating with gold onto Argentium. These techniques are presented in use as you work through three projects, creating two pairs of gold dust earrings (one with a bezel setting) and an earring featuring a gold bezel.
In the second disc, learn to fuse gold sheet to thick Argentium® Silver sheet and how to apply the keum-boo technique using gold foil of Argentium, as well as how to harden Argentium, solder ear wires, roller-print and hallmark your Argentium, and, finally, how to use patinas in finishing your Argentium designs. As you master these techniques, you create three keum-boo earring projects and two ring projects (one featuring a bezel setting).
