C133 - Metal Clay Silver Freeform Stone Set Pendant


$ 150  

 

We sometimes have that special stone that requires us to be more creative than just a bezel setting. You can’t fire it in place, so what do you do? Join me in this class for an adventure in creativity and design. You will learn how to create the proper space for the stone and how to build a setting that will allow you to add the stone after the whole firing/shrinking process is complete.
This class requires the student to have a certain comfort level for working with the clay, not for someone that has never worked with it before!

Student supply list: Basic metal clay tools (roller, thickness slats, clay knife, small brush, soft brass brush and burnisher) minimum of 25g PMC3 clay. A lower profile, flat back freeform
stone, please keep the size under 2”x1 ½”. Cord or chain to hang finished piece with.

Kit Fee paid to instructor at beginning of class: $20, includes
use of consumables, extra tools, PMC Paste, firing and polishing.

Instructor will have extra clay for purchase if needed and a small selection of stones for sale.
