The Basics of Reversible Draped Pendants

CLASS DESCRIPTION  Make a truly unique fine silver pendant by learning how to roll and drape thin sheets of "metal clay".  Metal clays (PMC-brand and others) are among the newest contributions to the metalsmith’s toolkit.  One of the most interesting “metal clay” techniques, yet one that is easily performed even by absolute beginners in this medium, is to roll and texture thin sheets of clay, drape them like fabric into interesting folds, cut out an interesting shape, and add a few decorative flourishes (if desired), to end up with a unique, reversible, sterling silver (.960) art jewelry pendant.  PLEASE NOTE:  Pieces will be fired after class, and available for pick-up at Artsmiths one week later.
