Spend the morning creating one-of-a-kind earrings as a gift or for yourself!
In just 3 hours, you will learn how to make earrings out of fine silver metal clay. The great part about metal clay is a piece of jewelry can be made in a matter of a few hours without all the expensive equipment required if making jewelry the traditional way.
You will learn how to roll and texture fine silver metal clay, fire it using a butane torch, as well as polishing/finishing techniques.
But it does not stop there, the student also creates their own earring wires by bending and hammering them into shape.
The fee includes all materials: metal clay and sterling wire for the earrings and use of tools in class! All you have to do is show up!
This class will focus solely on
rings in Precious Metal Clay (PMC). Students will address how to correctly measure ring size as well as texturing, carving, and/or decorating the ring. We will explore two ring styles in class
and the student can choose to create one of the two rings styles in this class: Bypass Ring, Band ring (textured, carved), and set a cubic zirconium (optional). I will supply the kiln and have
some of my tools available to use during the course of the day.
Level: Students must have taken
introductory class or have prior experience in metal clay.
Materials fee will include 1
pkg. PMC and other consumables used during class. Student should bring their favorite tools and work surface, as well as magnifying visor for close up work.
