Join us for a free Thomas Mann webinar: Demystifying the Jeweler’s Saw
|Some of Thomas's intricately sawn jewelry designs snapped when he spoke to my metal guild this past summer.|
One of the most basic metal jewelry artist's tools is the saw. Even beginning metalworkers who don't solder yet will most likely use a jeweler's saw to cut out components for their jewelry designs. Unlike metal shears, a jeweler's saw allows you to cut out very intricate shapes and even cut holes or other shapes inside a metal piece for a pierced metal look. And who better to learn about a jewelry saw from than a jewelry artist whose masterful use of the saw creates fanciful, intricately shaped works of art jewelry?
Join us in a free webinar to learn more about using a jeweler's saw from one of today's most successful jewelry artists, Thomas Mann.
