Class Description: What makes this necklace unique is that it’s designed to be interchangeable. The nugget is removable from the bar and you can hang another pendant in its place. This is a Wire and Fire class using sterling silver wire and soldering techniques. You will form each of the wire components, then join them using a small butane torch and paste solder. You are welcome to use traditional solder and flux or paste solder.
