Let's Get Twisted! Silver Earrings or Pendant
Wed, May 3, 2017, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT
CLASS DESCRIPTION Let’s play with some metal clay! We’ll use a special formula that remains somewhat flexible even until it's been fired. That will let us twist it around in various interesting ways, to make decorative elements or to create custom designs for later beading or wirework.
PLEASE NOTE: Pieces will be fired after class, and available for pick-up at Artsmiths one week later.
