This class is designed for jewelry artists who have never worked with metal clay, but who are curious about exploring this fascinating medium. We will discuss basic metal clay skills such as how to correctly roll and texturize clay, how to keep the clay moist, and much more. Students can then use their newly found knowledge to make a pendant (with or without a bail), earrings, a handful of charms, or any combination of these elements. When the pieces are dry we will learn to torch-fire the jewelry, so that students will be able to work with metal clay at home: no kiln required!
