Class Description

This pendant was inspired by a beautiful patterned Turkish rug that I fell in love with. This is a gorgeous multi layered pendant which can be made with or without texture. We will create elements to layer on top of the pendant to create depth and volume. I will use pre-fabricated tube settings for faceted stones and gallery bezels for the focal cabochons. You will learn clean soldering, stick soldering, pick soldering, make twisted wire, add a riveted bail, and decorate with assorted sizes of large granules, polishing and finishing and stone setting included. No rolling mill or etching required but you can texture your metal if you choose.

Participate from your own studio or from ours! Open Studio is available for FREE to all participants of this workshop. Instruction will be presented via MAGG's media equipment. Enjoy the company of fellow participants while you work!
