This fast-paced, hands on beginner workshop will begin by introducing you to the magic of roll printing patterns on copper sheet. Then we’ll punch up the impact by using the heat of a torch to coax incredible color from simple white enamel – you won’t believe the effects you get with just this one color! We’ll finish by creating a simple sterling silver tab setting, embellished with a chunky stone drop and a knotted leather cord.
Absolutely everything necessary to complete the project is provided in this workshop – all tools, materials, and equipment! Bring a pen and notebook for note-taking and eye magnification if required, but otherwise leave the big bags at home and just come and have fun! PLUS: You’ll get 90 minutes for lunch and to shop the terrificTucson Bead Show!
