It all starts with a tour of Torpedo Factory Art Center, where you'll meet artists at work and view some of Dejan's own handmade metal jewelry. The focus then shifts to a hands-on jewelry-making lesson, and Dejan demonstrates different hammering techniques before helping you make a ring of your own.
