Question from Jena T.
I have a fair amount of broken gold and silver jewelry (solid, not plate) that I keep around for sentimental reasons but don't like enough to repair. I have always wanted to make something new out of these pieces. Is this class the right place for that?
Answer from Kristle C. CourseHorse Staff
First, the teacher needs to see what you have, at least some pictures. The teacher also advised taking at least 5 classes if you do not have the experience yet with melting and recycling all the jewelry. Hope that helps!

Question from Marsha W.
I'm interested in making jewelry using spoons and forks, bending, cutting, soldering, etc. I've purchased products online that promised to achieve this outcome but it didn't work out. Would taking one of your classes help me to reach my goal?
Answer from Angelica B. CourseHorse Staff
You can definitely work with them as long as your utensils are made of solid metal; sterling silver, copper brass or nickel silver. Unfortunately, plated materials won't work in this class.

Question from Amy H.
What exact types of items do you learn to make in this class ?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse Staff
In the first class, you will learn a design tool to design your first piece from scratch and that day you will learn how to cut file and sand it. Second class, you will learn how to solder that first piece and you will learn how to finish a piece and you will learn how to do a ring by carving wax. Third class, you will start a bezel setting pendant/ ring or an anticlastic cuff.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse Staff
Fourth, you will finish or keep working on this pieces and then we might do reticulation granulation or twisted wire or a simple chained bracelet or earrings. The classes are very personalized and you will learn how to craft metal meanwhile you learn different techniques and you learn how to design. But for me is not about the number of pieces is about you learning this craft properly.

Question from Marjorie D.
Could you give us an idea of the costs for the supplies?
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse Staff
Hi! The list will fluctuate between $60-$70 depending on the materials the Students choose. The school normally sends the list with materials and supplies after the first class, but to give an idea, Students will require a basic list of materials to create their pieces: Metal sheet, metal wire, Silver soldering, 4 dozen of Blades, wax. If Students want to learn stone setting then we add stones and fine silver to the list.
