Interested in the newest trend in copper jewelry? Come join me as we turn found objects into copper. Explore the endless possibilities of copper electroforming in an easy to understand format. In this class we will combine shells, fossils, metal, glass, rocks, and minerals, into a pendent of your own unique creation. Techniques for framing, setting and protecting elements will be covered. Skills covered include basic electroforming, texturing and stone setting along with sealing, framing, and gluing techniques. Class will break twice during the day to provide time for bonding, and drying. Projects will need to process 48 hours for proper copper deposition. In addition to class resources, students are invited to bring small treasures to use in their creations (properly sealed with lacquer and dried). * Between 10:00-11:00 Sunday students return to the classroom to clean and finish their project.
