This workshop meets Saturday, August 28, 2021, 9:00 am - 5:30 pm

(lunch break suggested 12noon-2pm)


This hollow, shadowbox leaf design is split down the middle to reveal a shiny ball of silver, a pretty pearl, or a colorful cubic zirconia gem. Learn best practices for setting a kiln-safe, faceted gem so that it stays secure during firing/after shrinkage. This beautiful project teaches excellent construction techniques from dry components. There will be enough time for at least a pendant, while fast workers may be able to complete a pair of earrings. This is an intermediate-level one-day workshop.


A kit fee of $50 will be collected by the instructor during the workshop.
