Granulation is an ancient form of ornamentation that involves adding tiny dots and balls of silver to a piece of jewelry. The results look impressive but the technique is suitable for entry-level silversmiths. In this single evening class you will learn the skills to cut, shape, polish and solder silver into a ring or a pair of earrings, then decorate with tiny, molten bits of silver (granules).
