One of the world’s most well-regarded experts on the use of Argentium®, Ronda Coryell brings you the most sought-after DVDs—now available to stream—on working with this amazing alloy. The fourth in a series designed to teach a variety of techniques in Argentium, this two-part streaming video covers techniques for incorporating gold into your Argentium designs.
For part one, Ronda 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 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.
For part two, 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 will create three keum-boo earring projects and two ring projects (one featuring a bezel setting).
