Incorporating iron, steel or Damascus into jewelry items offers an elegance to creating personal, one-of-a-kind adornment. Much like a precious natural gemstone, a piece of artificially aged ferrous metal doesn’t have the same surface quality or story as a piece that is found. The techniques involved in using iron, steel or Damascus are very similar to working in platinum, gold or silver. Patience and care not to alter the textures is most important. The instructor will supply various pieces of steel gratis and a link to suppliers in the “student material list”. All skill levels are welcome, but the success you achieve in your finished piece will be more satisfying if you have experience with soldering and metalsmithing.
