Inspired by Nature - Metal Clay - S.A.L. Member
In this class students will explore the use of items found in nature such as leaves and Art Clay Silver Paste to create a lovely pin or pendant. They will learn the basics of art clay silver techniques and which tools are needed to create jewelry using this technique with silver paste. Cindy will discuss how to select the best leaves for this application and how to apply the silver paste to create an image of the leaf, which once fired creates a pure silver pendant or pin. Students learn firing and
finishing techniques, attachment skills and the use of patinas. They will also have the opportunity to create a variety of silver jewelry and/or other decorative objects for functional use in other projects. All materials are included in the cost of the workshop and tools needed will be provided for use in the class.
