Silver Passport Workshops

 

Expand your design horizons without solder. Cold Connections allow the silversmith to join two materials without using heat. One type of cold connect is the rivet. In this workshop we will learn how to construct the three types of rivets: wire, tube rivet, and the hidden rivet. These will be applied to a project of your choice.
