Turn your fingerprint (or someone else’s) into a precious silver keepsake jewellery using Silver Clay. Students will decide if they want 1 or 2 fingerprints on their charm and what shape they would like, ie: heart, etc. You will make and complete a personalized charm over the course of the day to take home with you. After your charm is fired, your print will need to be finished by filing, sanding, carving a message in back and applying a patina for that antique look. The afternoon will be spent creating either a bracelet, corded necklace using Kumihimo braiding, chainmail or a silk bracelet wrap.
Each student will be given a limited amount of silver clay that their fees cover. If the student wishes to make more fingerprint keepsakes, more silver clay is available for purchase in-class from the instructor at $40.00 per Silver Clay Kit.
Students can go home with a complete piece of handmade jewellery!
All supplies are included!
