Join us in the Rio video studio with renowned jeweler and master tool maker Bill Fretz as he demonstrates how to form a fluted convex cuff bracelet using his M-100 series stakes.
Bill will walk you through the process of forming the cuff into a convex shape and then adding the fluted pattern. A metal-forming master, Bill will offer tons of useful tips and tricks along the way. Learn how to set up your stakes and holder, how to position your hammer so you achieve a uniform design on the piece, and the mechanics behind how the metal moves across the stake as you’re hammering it.
Take this 12-minute mini-class with the maker and designer of Fretz metal-forming tools himself!
