You must order the following raw materials prior to coming to the first class. Materials can be ordered from many sites online. They include www.RioGrande.com and www.metalliferous.com

The links below are to the Rio Grande site, where I order my materials.

ONE 2x6 inch piece of 22 gauge sterling silver, (dead soft)


ONE 6x1 inch piece of 26 gauge fine silver (dead soft)


8 feet of 20 gauge round silver wire (dead soft)


12 inch piece of wire solder in each temper - hard, medium and easy


One packet of saw blade in size 1/0


A cabochon stone of your choice (to be set in a ring)  A good source for stones is Etsy or Ebay

If you are still interested in continuing after the first session, this is the list of materials I recommend for you to have to tackle almost any piece you want to make.   All wire and sheet should be ordered dead soft

26 gague round wire - 10ft  * 24 gauge round wire - 5 ft  *  20 gauge round wire - 10ft  *  18 gauge round wire - 3ft

14 gauge round wire - 2 ft  *  12 gauge round wire - 2 ft

You should order as much sterling sheet as you need for the projects you have in mind.  A small amount of

8 gauge half round wire is also good to half if you wish to make rings.
