Virginia Beach 2018 Registration is NOW OPEN

VA281 - Hinged Locket

Nancy Sacco
9:00 - 4:30
Wednesday October 3

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

This is a class loaded with techniques and options! Choose to make a silver or copper locket, then embellish it with an embossed, stamped, or soldered wire design. You will learn how to make a hinge for your locket, and how to rivet it onto your beautiful piece using rivets that you will make yourself.
Now here’s an interesting twist. You will make your own essential oil with your choice of several scents that will be provided, or if you prefer, bring COPIES of a picture you’d like to cut out in class and attach to the locket. If you chose this option, make sure you bring several sizes of COPIES of a picture you’d like to insert in the locket. If you choose to embellish with a soldered design, you will be shown how to solder using a small butane torch.
This will be a challenging class, but it can be accomplished in one day if we work really hard!
 All tools, materials and equipment needed to make this beautiful locket 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.

Supply List $30 includes: sterling or copper sheet, sterling wire, complete written instructons, and pendant templates.
