Pendant, Pebble, Bead & Stone, Metal Clay with Mary Neuer Lee

April 13-15, 2018
Instructor: Mary Neuer Lee

Metal Clay is the most user friendly medium in the jewelry making world. It is made of microscopic particles of metal that are embedded in an organic binder. It can be stamped, rolled, carved, shaped, and sculpted. After firing in a kiln or with a torch the binder burns away leaving a beautiful, sintered metal piece of jewelry ready to polish and patina. In this three-day intensive, students will learn how to create pendants and bails, beads of all shapes and sizes and whimsical hollow rock shaped beads. They will set faceted fire-in-place stones and, if time and interest allow, instruction in setting cabochon stones in bezel settings.
