Silversmithing

CRMS Silversmithing classes take ordinary metals and through drilling, sawing, and welding, students create intricate pieces of jewelry. Silversmithing, which started in the 1960s as an evening activity, has a rich history at CRMS. It is now offered as an academic class and frequently as an Interim offering. Interim offerings have featured Navajo silversmiths as well as a renowned enameling artist.

In the academic curriculum, students gain proficiency with the basic jewelry techniques of sawing, filing, soldering, and polishing to design and create projects in silver and other materials. The principles and elements of design are the foundation for self-expression in three-dimensional jewelry and sculpture. The course covers a variety of techniques, stone setting, the history of silversmithing, properties of metals, and significant artists.
