Join me in making a tiny photo frame pendant and bracelet from scratch. I’ll show techniques like how to cut and file metal, how to wire the pendant into a necklace, how to create a bracelet that will hold a photo as well. You also will learn how to join metals, insert photos, materials needed for projects, and there are many options to choose from. Beginners can choose no soldering techniques, and intermediates can use their butane torch! And, if you want to display your frame, you will learn how to make a sweet stand from scratch! This is a fantastic workshop for metal skills, cold connections, learning to solder and much, much, more. Every level is welcome for this workshop.
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.
After retiring from a grinding career in media, she returned to her passion…art. A jewelry designer for fifteen years, Riki has taught for the last half dozen. She began with mixed media jewelry making, studying with the masters of the craft. Lately she has explored watercolor and acrylic painting. With her love of travel, watercolor art journaling is a new passion.
In the past, you could find her designs in juried art festivals, as well as various boutiques nationally. Riki even had her own line of cast dog image jewelry for many years. She has been featured many times in prestigious art publications such as Stampington’s Belle Armoire, Jewelry Affaire and Belle Armoire Jewelry.
Teaching has become the focus of Riki’s outlet now. She often teaches at national mixed media retreats like Art Unraveled, Adorn Me, Vivi Magoo and Art is You. We’re proud to say this year marks Riki’s fifth year as an instructor with Artful Gathering. She enjoys teaching on line workshops, saying “I love being able to reach students worldwide, in the convenience of their home”. Be sure to check out Riki’s workshops. Students come back often with glowing reviews about her fun classes, saying she provides highly detailed instruction, packed full of techniques.
