Elegant Mabe Pearl PendantJanuary 18, 2:00pm - 6:00pm (ALREADY PAST)Wirework Class By Merilou JenkinsClass Fee: $135.00 (no refunds after December 15, 2019)
Skill Level: All
We will be utilizing a mabe pearl to create this elegant pendant, however you can take the skills you learn in this class and use them to create a multitude of different pendants simply by changing the cabochon. I will demonstrate how to capture the pearl in a basic pendant setting and then complete the piece by creating a bail and utilizing multiple wires simultaneously to curve around the top of the pendant creating a simple, yet elegant, look. As previously stated you can change the entire effect by changing the cabochon and/or the type of wire you choose to use. Learn about wire temper, wire gauges and wire shapes as well as all about the necessary tools. You will learn how to measure enough wire, how to create a bundle of wire, how to bind your wire and how to create a bail. The class fee includes sterling silver wire, a mabe pearl, a jeweler’s polishing cloth, a fleece work surface and a copy of my 12 page instruction book featuring complete instructions with color step by step photographs, all of which is yours to take home. All tools will be provided for you to use in class. Class size is limited to 6 so register early!
