Class Description:
With romantic and spiritual inspiration, we will create pendants and charms in various sizes using multiple materials. I will share my detailed gilded and finishing techniques while soldering a French chandelier crystal. You will learn how to securely attach vintage rhinestone embellishments and found objects from your favorite collection. We will seal spiritual images of the Madonna, or you may choose to bring your own vintage image(s) or reproduction of favorite family members, or a theme... in Ice Resin. We will apply a dark patina to bring out a vintage "old world" effect to the gilding. I will teach you how to shape, forge, work-harden, distress and manipulate heavy gauge wire to make pendants and charms of varied sizes and dimension... and yes, we will gild and embellish them.

Workshop: $140 ~ includes class kit
