In addition to completing the pendant shown, students will have the opportunity to make several pieces that may be used after the class. Students will finish the project in class.

Tools

Some tools will be provided by the instructor. Please refer to your registration.
  • Cut Lube

    Used to lubricate saw blades and drill bits for ease of cutting.
  • Tool Hand Tools

    Hand Tools

    Basic hand tools – Any quality is appropriate for my classes. These do not need to be high end or expense.

    • Round nose - Typically it is preferred that the round nose be a fine tip. Especially for classes with detailed wire work.
    • Chain/needle nose – Tapered jaws for general metal and wire work. Non-serrated are requested for all of my classes. Typically requested for classes to be used for opening and closing jump rings; in which case, 2 pairs are requested or a combination of chain nose and flat nose is suitable.
    • Flat nose – Similar to chain nose but the jaws are not tapered. Non-serrated are requested for all of my classes.
       
  • Helping Hand/Third Hand

    Used to hold small parts in place while soldering. Instructor will provide to share for every class needed.
  • Jeweler’s Saw

    Used for cutting sheet metal and metal tubes. Instructor will provide for every class needed.
  • Tool Magnifier or Optivisor

    Magnifier or Optivisor

    – For almost all classes this is listed as an “As Needed” tool. If you have sight challenges it is recommended that you are properly prepared. For advance stone setting classes this is required! If you decide to use reading glasses consider better than 2.5x.


  • Tool Ott Light or Task Lamp

    Ott Light or Task Lamp

    This is optional item that is listed for every class. It is up to you to determine whether or not you will need to have one depending on your vision.
  • Tool Propane Torch

    Propane Torch

    This torch may be purchased at a hardware store.
  • Tool Safety Glasses

    Safety Glasses

    Protective Eye wear – All drilling classes require that you wear some sort of safety glasses. Will your eyeglasses be enough? This is a personal decision. Some students prefer to wear only their prescription glasses while others wear goggles over their glasses. These may be found in any hardware store.
  • Side Cutters

    Also known as wire cutters or snippers. For many of my classes I prefer Ultra Flush side cutters because it eases the workload. Ultra flush is the most flush you can buy as opposed to just flush cutters. If you don't own a pair of Ultra Flush cutters, you may want to invest in a good pair either Lindstrom or Swanstrom. There is usually not a different in price between ultra and just flush cutters so why not just buy the best? The image shows just a side cutter (top) and ultra flush (bottom).
