About Your Host

The August Axel Jewelry Studio is a creative workshop originating in Venice Beach, CA and NOW inside Blue Cicada Studios – Peachtree City’s Art Studio. Online and in-Studio classes are available. The Studio and course offerings were designed to serve a range of skills and interests from talented tinkerers to advanced artists. Our goal is to provide solid and safe bench-instruction, combined with hands-on practice, so artists may operate safely, independently and successfully. COURSES: We serve ages 8+ Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Soldering. Bezel Setting. Tube Setting. Flush Setting. Prong Setting. Metalsmithing. Cold-Connections. Wire Wrapping. Knotting, Girl Scouts, Moms Nights, Corporate Enrichment Programs, Bridal Showers, DIY Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands and more.. Private or Group Lessons. INSTRUCTORS: As Owner and Senior Instructor, Christy Sears brings a wealth of knowledge to the bench. With 15+ years of jewelry soldering and metal fabrication, endless patience and a healthy sense of humor, she creates a warm and welcoming learning environment. Not only does she believe in teaching "how", but "why" and this has made all of the difference to her students. We’re looking forward to hosting you in our new Peachtree City home base.

What we’ll do

Creativity waits for no vaccine! Right? Let’s come together, safely, via Zoom, so you may continue pushing forward with your jewelry-making goals. This entry-level class was created so students may become comfortable with a torch. (Yep, a torch! But don’t worry! There’s nothing to be nervous about…) The curriculum covers the “how” and “why” of jewelry soldering by combining an overview of the tools, techniques and process + hands-on practice. Each student will use 2 different metals to fabricate textured stacking rings. There are 3 options to participate: 1) As for tools and materials, Atlanta Area residents may “Rent” a kit, available for pick-up (In Peachtree City) prior to class. The rental is in the form of a PayPal deposit, which will be refunded 100%, when the tools are returned in good condition. 2) And for those outside of the Atlanta Area, you’ll receive a shopping list of materials and tools to acquire before the online class. (The total cost for all of the tools is $185 + shipping.) 3) If you’re not ready to commit to purchasing your own tools and materials, feel free to join, anyway! Even if you aren’t ready for the “hands-on” part of class, you’ll still walk away with valuable information, tips and tricks. You should also expect to have fun, connect with interesting, like-minded creative people and gain the skills & knowledge to work independently! After taking this class, students have options for growth. Check-out our Bezel Setting Class, Tube Setting, Earrings Workshop and Gold-Fill Workshop. Take one, take all. We love to see our students succeed and grow in the craft.
