Jeanette Caines | NEW! Soldering Demystified | Saturday, February 3, 2024 | 9:00 am until 4:30 pm


You will love soldering my way!

In working with thousands of students over the years, I’ve found soldering to be the least understood skill in both silver and gold.

Myths as well as only partially-understood truths abound.

Let’s get down to the how and why soldering goes right and wrong.

I will show you common soldering scenarios in silver or gold and the concepts behind them so your solder always flows.

Give me one day and your soldering will improve 1000%.

You will want to practice some of the demonstrated techniques on the spot, so you can bring fine or sterling wire, round or half round (any shape, really) to practice soldering ring shanks, bangles, and jump rings.

You can also bring fine or sterling silver sheet to practice soldering bezels down, etc.

If you are currently working on any projects, bring them also. We can troubleshoot any problems you might be having.
