Workshops in Scottsdale


#1

Here’s a heads-up on two Precious Metal Clay workshops I will
teaching in Scottsdale, AZ in January, 2004. The workshops will be
held at Metals Edge Studio, a wonderful new jewelry arts center
offering a wide range of ongoing and intensive workshops. Check it
out!

FIRST WORKSHOP Date: January 24-25, 2004 Title: PURE SILVER CHARMS
BRACELET; Using Precious Metal Clay Course Description: Using
Standard Precious Metal Clay, a clay-like form of Pure Silver, you
will create seven unique charms embellished with images you select,
and which will then be suspended from a sterling chain bracelet.
This workshop will help you to develop a hands-on vocabulary for
working with PMC. Students will form three-dimensional, reversible
designs, using layered/collage elements and moldmaking, and,
time-permitting, inclusions (stone-setting, enamelling, etc.).
After the firing, students will finish/polish the charms and secure
them to the bracelet. Numerous examples will be presented through
slides and actual finished pieces. A tools and equipment list will
be furnished prior to class and all materials for your piece,
including sterling chain bracelet and clasp, PMC and
polishing/finishing supplies will be available. Experience in
jewelrymaking is not required for this class, where the only limit
is imagination and the only prerequisite is enthusiasm. Instructor:
