About this Class

Designed for students who have taken Introduction to the Jeweler's Torch and Introduction to Jewelry: Skills classes. The skills learned in this class, with practice, will help you feel more confident and ready for project classes.

Each student gets to take home their soldering sample exercises and handouts for future practice and revision.

You will learn through instructor demonstration and guided hands-on practice exercises. And you'll get the opportunity to work with the jewelry industry standard Smith Little torch and a propane/oxygen torch.


  • Experience level: Beginner to intermediate
  • A $30 materials fee, included in the cost of the class, covers all materials needed. Students can bring a couple things (listed below), too.
  • We will take one 15-30 minute break if you want to bring food/snacks. BARN has a refrigerator and microwave on the lower level.


  • Please bring a cotton apron and a hand towel.

Sarah Jones is a BARN founding member and member of the Jewelry Studio programming and steering committee. She is a Bainbridge Island artist, and teacher with experience in fine metal arts, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, stained glass, and photography.

Because she is a visual and tactile learner herself, her classes typically involve a lot of hands-on learning time. Sarah’s classes are accompanied by printed information and resources for her students to refer to when practicing their new skills.

Sarah’s art has been displayed in the Seattle Metals Guild and Bainbridge Arts & Craft exhibitions. Her work is sold at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.
