WKS603: "Bologna Sandwich" Pewter Casting

The name of this project comes from its stackable parts. Combine laser technology with centuries-old casting techniques to produce custom jewelry pendants in pewter.

In this workshop, you will work with your instructor to create two unique take-home jewelry pieces. The results are astounding. This is a great opportunity to let your Laser Cutter SBU skills shine.

Please note: This workshop utilizes TechShop’s equipment but all shop rules still apply – unless you have already passed the required safety course(s), you will not be operating the machine, your instructor will.
