Working with high firing cubic zirconia stones and with fine silver clay students will explore various settings to create a custom pair of earrings. Carrie will demonstrate three types of stone settings used to create beautiful combinations of color. Each setting is built to ensure the stones do not come out during firing. Carrie will demonstrate a bead set stone technique, a clay bezel set technique and a lump clay technique. Students will create a pair of fine silver earrings with the selection of embedded stones the desire.
Kit includes 5g fine silver metal clay, .925 silver ear wires, 6 cubic zirconias, fine silver eyelets and use of materials and tools.
All levels of experience welcome but some clay working skills are suggested.
