In this Intermediate necklace class, we will work on advancing dexterity with wire, continue our discussion on proper construction of cold connection components, and delve into layering of wire elements. Students will construct the necklace pictured, and upon arrival will have a choice between Lapis Lazuli or Garnet beads with which to work. All supplies are provided to make this piece, including a chain to finish the necklace. Additionally, students will receive a printed tutorial booklet that contains instructions for making this piece again independently, as well as material on other wire tips that will be applicable to the project. PLEASE NOTE: You must have successfully completed the Beginner Wire workshop before enrolling in this class.
All materials and tools needed for the workshop are provided. The tools will remain the property of the instructor. The tool set (cutters, 5 styles of pliers, chasing hammer, bench block, polish cloth, 1 file and 1 buffer) will be available for students if they are interested in purchasing at an additional $95. Students are highly recommended to bring magnification (reading) glasses. Lunch will not be supplied. Please feel free to bring a bagged lunch or something to snack on.
