$ 85  

Transform your creative imaginings from ideas to a silver pendant. These types of pendants are usually made using silver clay, but in this class you’ll be shown how to make beautiful simple drawings using fine silver wire and fine silver sheet metal. Come with your own drawings in mind or use some of the instructor’s designs as a springboard to creating your pendant.
You’ll be shown how to cut and shape fine silver wire and then how to successfully fuse it to a fine silver base. After your pendant is complete you will make your own sterling silver bail. You may choose to oxidize the pendant or leave it pristine gleaming silver, then we will tumble your piece.

Supply List $30 includes:All tools, materials and equipment needed to make this beautiful pendant will be provided. There is nothing to bring or buy ahead of time!
No prior experience is necessary. Must be at least 17 years old to sign up.
As we will be using torches, please tie back long hair, wear close toed shoes, and do not wear loose, flowing clothing.
The kit includes fine silver sheet and wire, and sterling silver for the bail, typed instructions, and pendant templates and design suggestions.

*Some tools or equipment may have to be shared.
