In this workshop you will be creating a soldered piece that will be attached to the top of a wooden jewelry box. You will learn how to make a round box to fit your glass top and then create the inside of your box with a resin sacred heart. Using paints, glitter, velvet, metal bullion, and bits and pieces, you will embellish your heart and design the inside of the reliquary. If you have some bits and pieces that you would like to use from your personal stash, by all means please bring them so that you can incorporate them into your box. After the inside of the box is finished, you will solder your box closed and then it will be affixed to the top of the jewelry box.

You will give your wooden jewelry box a coat of paint and then using crackle medium and dark wax, it will look like an aged relic box.


Materials Fee $35 paid at beginning of class includes:

Wooden jewelry box, glass, resin heart, velvet, metal bullion, paints to use, crackle medium, dark wax, small bits and pieces to add inside your box, jewelry box feet.
