Fold Forming is an essential starting point for the creation of many types of fabulous jewelry. This valuable technique allows you to create rather elaborate, unique pieces using a hammer and small piece of metal. In this class, you will make a Pod or Leaf shaped copper Pendant. You will do no soldering but will learn to work with a torch to anneal (heat treating to soften and/or change color) the copper as a finishing touch. All skill levels welcome.
