Cold Connections: copper cuff

A cuff I made a few weeks ago in the Florida Society of Goldsmiths' beginning metals class - cold connections.  We learned to rivet and tube rivet.  The first class was an introduction to metals and we sawed, textured, and soldered.  The third class in the series is coming up in a few weeks and we will learn to basic bezel making.  The 1 1/2 drive to Tallahassee is always worth the trip.


  1. I love it...saw one in a magazine recently and thought I could give it a go...very similar in style.Love your riveting and the copper colors look so pretty.Great job and definately worth the drive!

  2. This came out of a beginners class? Wow, it's amazing!

    I wish we had classes like that around here. I would drive that far just to learn cold connections.

  3. I love that. I took a short class in Texas a couple of weeks ago and did a tube rivet. So much fun.

  4. You did a great job for a beginner. Thanks for the info on the FL Society of Goldsmithing, I will check them out. Maybe we will be classmates some day!

  5. Good Morning, just signed up for a workshop at their WC chapter with Wendy Thurlow. Looking forward to it. It's about a 30 mins drive for me and I would not have known about it if not for this posting. Thank you.

  6. Yes, yes, yes!
    Love this!
