Gold-filled can add value and a gold color option to your work while remaining affordable. But what is gold-filled and how is it different from working with other materials like sterling or gold? This workshop will focus on an introduction to what gold-fill is, essential metalworking techniques, tools, and design used to create jewelry using gold-filled wire and sheet. Instruction will include information that will familiarize you with how gold-fill is made, alloys, plating options, and how it is similar and different when working with gold or sterling.
