Learn to create gorgeous contrast in your work using the versatility of steel with the richness of gold. Students will fabricate rings, bracelets, and brooches composed of non-ferrous metals including silver and gold, as well as steel, a metal that is surprisingly easy to work with. We will give volume to sheet metal by scoring, bending, and forming, and we will practice the techniques of hot forging to take advantage of the plastic properties of these very malleable materials. Come prepared to experiment!

Born in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1972, SUZANNE PUGH began her metals and jewelry education in high school, continued at The University of Georgia, and at Kansas State University achieved an MFA which she uses daily, expounding metal and metal related ideas at City College of San Francisco. Suzanne is interested in material, metaphor, line, contrast, and narrative in her work.
