Create a geode-like moonscape enameled pendant necklace that’s out of this world! No two are ever alike and the results are always incredible; plus, you will love watching yours take shape as you create it!
Each student will learn basic torch and kiln enameling (Mapp gas), metal-working skills, cold-connecting and soldering techniques. We’ll also be making a simple tabbed setting for the enameled disc. You will leave with a finished necklace, either an oval or a circle in a tab setting including your choice of color, shape, size, and necklace chain, rubber, or leather cord. Even the back will be a work of art!
Please be sure to check your e-mail purchase receipt for file attachments containing your materials and supply list, and any handouts provided with this workshop DVD.
Jean Van Brederode is trained as a teacher, yet she has been an artist all her life. Creating with metal and enamels gives her nearly as much enjoyment as teaching others the joys of doing it, too. Her experience includes instructing in in her PA home studio, along with several Art and Soul Retreats, Cloth Paper Scissor’s Create Retreats, and Bead Fest locations. Enjoy spending time with Jean this year at Artful Gathering, for a well planned, upbeat, and animated class where every student leaves with a finished project!
Jean’s additional credits include her artwork features in 500 Art Necklaces, Steampunk Magazine, Belle Armoire Jewelry, Cloth Paper Scissors, and Green Craft Magazines.
