Precious Metal Recycling with Clare Poppi ~ learn to melt down and re-use your unwanted precious metal scrap into sheet and wire to create new pieces of jewellery. Students will learn the process of sorting, alloying, melting, pouring and creating sheet and wire using silver. This process can then be applied to other precious metals such as gold. The rolling mill and drawplates will be used to create different gauges of sheet and wire. Scrap fusing and granulation will also be demonstrated as additional techniques to re-use metal scrap.
