Two excellent jewelry instructors offer 8 week classes. Alice Carroll continues her popular Intro to Jewelry (SA 17) class and new instructor and master jeweler Rob Peacock offers Hollow Form Jewelry Construction (SA 18). The content of this course will evolve around the art of manipulating, forming and fabricating sheet metal into three dimensional forms to create rings, pendants, and bracelets.
