“Sacred Grace ~ Embraced"
Debby Anderson 
Saturday, August 11, 2018

The word sacred is derived from Old French sacrer, which means to consecrate or dedicate. Each of our hearts holds a unique combination of courage, love, joy and tenderness, which are revealed daily through our actions, words and deeds. Won’t you take this journey with me as we honor or dedicate our hearts to love, romance, bravery and purpose.

I am honored to finally share my love of replicating beautiful historic relics from the 19th century...
I have worked with original antique Meerschaums from my collection over the last 4 years striving to create my reproductions to look and feel like the original works of art.  Now you will also become passionate in creating your own replicated Madonna pendants.
Techniques (non-soldering class):
I will share my unique style of castings of the Madonna using molds and sculpting clay.

Students will learn how to add color and antiquing methods ~ 

this creates dimension while giving your work an “Old World” & “time-worn” look.

Students will work with vintage beaded sari silk, antiqued lace, and beaded trims, etc. 
Students will further embellish their work while embedding their own vintage gems and found objects.
Student Class Kits:
3 pack ~ Sacred Heart Resin Blanks (Relic's & Artifacts)
A  selection of vintage beaded Sari Silk from India
Antiqued lace
Apoxie Sculpt Clay (air dry)

Instructor will have the following for use in class:

baby wipes
acrylic paints

selection of lace, and beaded trims

Student Supply List:
when designing these beauties…it’s all about layering techniques, color and embellishments!

Day Two

Filigree is a beautiful form of metalwork.  It originated in the ancient world. This exquisite lacy metal technique is one of the oldest and most beautiful of art forms developed by man.

Beautiful and delicately ornate perfume bottles and pendants from the 19th Century were my inspiration in designing “Majestic Rose”.  

I would love for you to join me in creating a romantic pendant using antiqued images behind glass.  We will design and securely solder reproduction embossed stampings and lacy filigree while trimming and manipulating to create gorgeous 3 - dimensional embellished regal works of art!

We will also create simple, or ornate connectors to attach our pendants and *necklace.

*Students may want to pre-make a necklace to attach to pendant & connector.  If time permits, you may want to design and create a necklace during class using your selected beads and crystals, rhinestone rondelles, etc.

  • Student Kits include:
All **materials to create project pendant and connector. 

**Students to supply any vintage embellishments.



100 Watt Soldering Iron (Weller 100 is the brand I use and encourage)
Soldering Iron Stand 
Flux, flux brush, Sal Ammoniac block, lead free solder
Heat resistant surface (Fire brick, magnesium brick or silicone baking mat)
Hardware Store Pliers (for soldering)
Jewelry Tools - Round, Chain and Flat Nose Pliers, Flush Cutters
Chasing Hammer, Bench Block and Bench Pad, or small towel 
*Embellishments: vintage rhinestones, gems, additional stampings and filigree of your choosing (only if you want something additional to add ~ kits replicate project pendant/connector)
2 Paint Brush for applying color and antiquing of supplied image
Optional: Pre-made necklace, sections to assemble, and/or beads, crystals, rhinestone roundels, as well as 24-gauge wire for wrapping, etc

* Suggested vintage rhinestone jewelry for creating your pendant "connector"... Shoe, or Dress Clips, small brooches, rhinestone earrings, etc.



I hope you can join me in August!!! Deb xoxo
