I also call this project the “anything” harness. Students will learn this technique on a 3-dimensional gemstone heart which can later be redesigned to work on many different, irregular shaped items. The workshop fee includes teacher fee, student’s choice of 2 gemstone hearts, silver wire, and embellishment beads, pearls, and crystals, to finish 2 pendants in class. (They sell really well at shows!)
Special Notes or requirements: Instructor will have tools for everyone to use in class, or you may bring your own: flat, round and chain nose pliers; wire cutters; foot long ruler; ultra fine marker. Please bring your camera to take photos of difficult steps! Cancellation policy: no refunds will be given after January 13, 2017.
