In this course we will familiarize ourselves with the basic tools and techniques of jewelry making, such as cutting, drilling, filing, polishing, and soldering. Our objective will be to make a chain link bracelet with a toggle clasp, and learn how to fabricate a bezel setting and set a cabochon gemstone.
