For anyone close enough, the NC Society of Goldsmiths is sponsoring
a clasp workshop with Vickie Cole Prillaman in Chapel Hill, NC in
August. Note the deadline to sign up is July 31! We still have a few
spaces left if anyone is interested.
A Clasp Sampler Workshop, August 20-21, 2011
Description: This two-day workshop will feature a spiral clasp,
which is a simple but very interesting clasp made on the ends of
either a rawhide or satin lacing; a box clasp and its many
variations; a puzzle clasp, based on a jigsaw puzzle where the inner
piece fits inside the outer; an Egyptian coil clasp; and a hinge
clasp. Most of these clasps can also be part of the decorative
portion of your necklace and worn in the front rather than just
being a closure device.
Leader: Vickie Cole Prillaman
