This workshop is designed to guide you in the creation of your own unique pendant design that includes zones dedicated for the application of dust granulation and forming roses. You will also creat post settings for pearls by embedding silver wire into the un-fired clay. After kiln firing the piece, you will also create and solder a decorative bezel setting and set a beautiful Moonstone if you choose to follow the example piece. Participants will have a choice of example pieces to create their own unique design.
You will also cover rotary tool sanding, polishing to your piece to your preferred finish.
