The Program:

Don't miss this opportunity to learn to fuse rings and ball your own headpins with only a $12 kit fee! Fusing is a process with fine silver wire that does not require flux or solder and does not need to be pickled because there is no resulting fire scale. You will ball two head pins and turn one into an ear wire and fuse and texture a medium ring which will hang from the ear wire.

$12 In the kit will be enough wire for the project and a little extra wire to practice making the rings and head pins.
The kit will include:

22g fine silver wire
12g fine silver
wire jump rings
gas for the torches




sm-med. size bead (pearl, crystal, etc...) to be used as a dangle from the fused ring, flush cutters, round-nose pliers, chain-nose pliers, flat-nose pliers, crimping pliers, chasing hammer, bench block, cross-locking tweezers

We will have torches and firing blocks for you to share, but if you have your own please bring them.




This is at the SW corner of Brookschool and 116th Street. The entrance is on Brookschool. The building we are in sits back off of the road behind the Fire Station. We are in the basement and the entrance to the room is on the far west side of the lot.

There is no charge for the meeting space, but they have asked that we each bring a canned good for their food pantry.
