In this workshop, students will learn to set beautiful gemstone cabochons in silver metal clay and create a one-of-a-kind pendant. Instead of solder students will learn to make bezels with silver metal clay and attach their gemstones to a textured background, add an intriguing bail, and apply patina. Students will carve and shape metal clay in a variety of ways, and learn proper firing techniques.
Students will leave with a completed fine silver pendant set with a unique semi-precious gemstone cabochon. Instructor will supply a variety of cabochons to choose from.
