Combine the magic of silver metal clay and dichroic glass to create a one-of-a-kind pendant or pair of earrings. Sparkling dichroic glass can be fired surrounded by silver to make jewelry that sparkles and shines without soldering. We’ll provide a selection of handmade fused glass cabochons or you can bring your own. Then you’ll learn the special techniques needed to set your cabochons in fine silver metal clay and ways to use a special variety of silver clay to embellish your cabochon. You’ll learn design considerations, solutions to technical issues, and basic metal clay tools and techniques. We’ll discuss how dichroic glass cabochons are made, but will not make them in this class. We’ll provide firing schedules for both the cabochons and for the finished silver pieces, but since we have to fire each step for over 8 hours, we’ll fire your pieces in our jewelry kilns after class and pre-polish them with our magnetic tumbler. You will return to pick up your finished pieces and add patina one week after the last class.

No experience necessary! Class size is limited so register early!
