Intro
Ronda Coryell is a Master Goldsmith and Certified Master Bench Jeweler in the USA and one of the world’s most well-regarded experts on the use of Argentium. She has won several prizes and her work can be admired in several jewelry books. She teaches worldwide and is the author of many videos on Argentium.
After the success and popularity of the 2017 edition of the workshop in Porto, Ronda will be coming back to show us the magic of Argentium silver.

In this 3-day workshop, students will have three projects, designed to explore the most possibilities in working with Argentium. All projects will be created using no solder: each will be fabricated by fusing. All projects can incorporate granulation. Argentium is a silver alloy that is purer and whiter than sterling silver, does not tarnish, does not oxidise and makes granulation an easy task.

The projects to be taught during the workshop were designed in a way to present different challenges to working with Argentium and overcoming them by just fusing the material (no solder is used). The finished piece is then continuous and does not have the solder marks.
These are the projects:

Project one: stacked ring made of wire and granulation
Project two: Heavy flat band incorporating granulation and fused wires
Project three: Oval bead incorporating granulation and fused wires
