(this class is for intermediate to advanced students)
Day 1 and 2
For 2 days you will learn techniques about revealing the unexpected. It is about changing the appearance of Effetre (Moretti) glass. We will do this by applying metals such as silver leaf and silver foil to the bead as well as by fuming the beads with fine silver. We will also work on making and applying complex twisted glass canes and dichroic glass.
Here are a few examples of some of the beads we will be making
On day three it is all about working with silver. We will start with coring small simple beads. Once you are feeling comfortable with that I will teach you how to make silver bead caps out of silver sheet. From there we will core and cap a few beads that you made in class.
The remainder of the day we will make silver bangles out of 10 and 12 gauge silver.
Here’s a photo to give you an idea of the type of bracelets!
