Just wanted to let you know that Bead & Button sign ups start January 9th!
I am teaching 4 classes. Hope to see you in a class or two.....or 3....or 4.......My first class is: RIVETS COLD CONNECTIONS & MORE
This class will not only teach you all about riveting, we will also explore different methods of texturing and coloring metals. A great class for those that are new to riveting...those that haven't been successful riveting and those that are experienced and looking to expand their skills!
In this class you will learn to color metal and then create a piece of your choice using riveting techniques. No drawing skills required....just the need to have fun and explore!
Spend the day creating earrings....after all we can never have too many! Some of the skills used will be metal forming, chain maille, wire wrapping and creating a unique wire bead. The hardest thing about this class will be deciding which pair to wear out of class!
This is a technique that I am obsessed with! Etching metal without the toxic chemicals....be still my heart! We will explore a number of methods of applying designs to the metals. After etching you will have the opportunity to create a piece of your choice. Just beware....you too may become obsessed!
