The hinge is such an interesting part of jewelry making. You can use hinges to create movement between two parts of your design. And of course, a hinge is used to make two parts open, like the lid of a box or opening a bracelet. Join us for this workshop and spend 2 days exploring hinges to add articulation and movement to your jewelry.

Anat will demonstrate how to accurately measure, cut, solder and finish hinges, to make a pair of earrings with bezel settings. But students can also make pendants or other designs that use hinges.
