Learn to combine your metal clay skills into one cohesive statement necklace. In this class, Carrie will discuss basic clay sculpting techniques and tools. Working with wet clay techniques, students will make a bronze central component, then advance to fine silver matching components. Each component will be sculpted from very small elements to create a cohesive pattern. After firing, Carrie will review finishing the elements with sterling chain and findings. Students will learn a super fast method to fuse argentium wire jumprings to close the joined elements.
All experience levels are welcome.
