Beadmaking & Silver Metal Clay


February 3 - 8, 2020
Flameworking, Cold Working, and Metalworking
All Levels
One-Week Session

This class is a culmination of the many years Kristina and Márta have spent teaching side-by-side. This unique workshop is devoted to making one-of-a-kind jewelry by combining flameworked glass and silver metal clay. Students will share class time learning from two instructors.

Kristina will teach flamework beadmaking where she will explain and demonstrate a variety of techniques such as: dots, precise patterning, clear casing, raking and feathering, and forming large shapes. In the metal portion of the class, Márta will take students through the steps needed to create unique silver elements, findings, clasps, bails, and bezels. Márta will teach a variety of techniques such as: carving, modeling, firing, sanding, and polishing. In addition, both instructors will help students with any needed coldworking and final assembly of finished pieces. This is a great class for students to work on identifying and refining their own individual style of artwork.

Experience in small scale detailed work is an advantage, but not necessary.
