Metal Clay:Captured Cab Fine Silver Pendant $100

July 20 @ 11:00 am 4:00 pm

captured cab fine silver pendant

Make this rustic pendant with Art Clay fine silver and get the work done within the class! This clay can fire for 30 minutes and works perfectly for a piece like this. You’ll create a framework that includes a base, (with a texture on back if you like), prongs, and holders for the leather strands. Enjoy some hands-on with the kiln. Optional activities can include making a clay bead or silver rings, either of which (or both!) serve to gather the strands together at the top of the pendant. Join us for the fun!

Kit Fee: The kit for the class will be added to your ticket on the day of class.

Please Read: The class fee shown above does not include the metal clay or any other supplies. You will be charged for the metal clay the day of the class. All materials and tools for classes must be purchased at Beadoholique Bead Shop. This allows us to continue providing you with quality classes.
