Be an individual and have a piece of jewelry unlike anyone else - and YOU made it! Learn the core techniques of jewelry making in this weeklong workshop. Direct metal techniques such as sawing, filing, soldering and bezel setting will be explored in this fundamental course. Images of inspiration will be viewed, as well as proper use of hand tools and torches explained. Make a pierced cuff bracelet, a ring with a bezel set stone, or even a pair of earrings! Tools and materials are available to the workshop participants in this well equipped studio. No prior experience necessary.
Mary Beth Rozkewicz was born in Norwalk, Connecticut where she began studying jewelry making at a young age. She went on to she receive her BFA in gold and silversmithing at The State University of New York at New Paltz. She created and marketed her own work, which was sold in galleries and museum stores worldwide. Mary Beth now teaches at many prestigious institutions including the 92Y in Manhattan and Pratt Institute in Brooklyn where she is an adjunct associate professor. She has recently left Brooklyn after 36 years, and moved to the “country” where she now has some dirt to dig in and is considering getting some chickens. This will be Mary Beth Rozkewicz’s 19th year at Castle Hill encouraging and spreading the word of hand made jewelry.
