Precious Metal Clay – Filigree Technique Pendant with Bezel Setting

August 5, 2023 - 10:00am - 4:00 pm

Class Description:  Description of class:  This class is an adventure in working with precious metal clay to create a Filigree Technique Pendant with Bezel Setting working with Art Clay Silver.  Art Clay Silver is a product specially formulated for objects that can be created and fired on the same day with outstanding results.  Art Clay Silver is pure fine silver (.999) mixed with water and an organic binder.  It is soft and easy to work with simple tools.  Once it is fired at 1550 degrees for 45 minutes the product is .999 fine silver.  Art Clay silver is available in several formulations such as syringes, paste, silver-coated paper, and overlay paste. Art Clay Silver projects can be combined with ceramics, glass fusions, kiln-fired enameled, and torch enameled.  The creative possibilities are endless.  Art clay copper is also available.

The techniques covered in this class include how to manipulate the clay, and techniques to expand on the skills, and experiences previously learned. New techniques covered in this class include how to use a variety of jewelry molds, and sculpture techniques.  Other inclusions to add interest could include the addition of small molded decorative elements to create a variety of design combinations.  We will be using a variety of tools, to support the design such as finishing, sanding techniques, and how to make simple repairs.  Intermediate, some metal clay experience appreciated.  All supplies and materials are provided.
