Create your own gold alloys and then use them in a new piece of jewelry or two. Learn about gold alloys and the unique personalities of the metal in its various compositions. There are a lot more options than what commercial suppliers offer. Beginning with one ounce of your own pure gold, learn to calculate and mix it with other metals, resulting in the karats and colors of your choice in shades of red, green, grey and yellow. Watch and learn how to forge and mill, sheet and wire as you begin to fabricate a project of your own design. Demonstrations include how to use gold solders, fuse metal and use cold connections. Students learn what each karat and color of gold is like to work with as far as malleability, work hard- ening and annealing during the process of creating jewelry.
