Pendant with Handmade Chain
May 6, 2023 @ 10:00 am - May 7, 2023 @ 5:00 pm$300.00
In this unique weekend workshop, you will have the opportunity to work with two artist/teachers.
On Saturday, working with Robert, you will learn how to fold-form a piece of sterling silver, copper or brass and then pierce a design using the raised folds as visual “walls” separating the pierced areas. You will then stack this pierced piece with a reflector, colored Plexiglas, or any image of your choosing. This stack is then backed with a piece of copper or brass and using cold connections, made ready to hang on one of the fabulous chains you’ll be making with Leslie on Sunday.
If you make necklaces (or bracelets), one of the biggest challenges is having a chain that is beautiful, functional, and expresses the quality of your work. Cheap, Chinese chains just don’t do that.
In this full-day class, Leslie will teach you how to make beautiful chains to raise your work to another level.
You will explore different hooks, learn to make a C-clasp, and push the creative envelope to make links consistent with your beautiful work. We will be using Argentium silver because we can FUSE it! That means
no soldering If you’ve never used Argentium, this is the time!
Saturday and Sunday, May 6&7 10am – 5 pm
