Like a tiny palette of oil paints, Paint Pot Pendant will display your favorite enamel colors all in one beautiful torch-enameled pendant! In class, we will cut your design shapes from sheet copper (or use my designs) to create the bottom and domed top plates, then create the tiny paint pots to fill the bezel opening to later be filled with luscious enamel colors! If you have never used a jeweler’s saw before or have been unsuccessful with it, have no fear! You’ll be sawing like a pro by the end of this class You will leave the workshop with a finished Paint Pot Necklace to proudly wear and say “I made this myself!”
