For extra added sparkle to your silver clay jewellery, add some stones!
This full-on day will cover two styles of stone setting - claw (using a ready made setting) and bezel style which you will make using silver clay. You will incorporate one of each type to make a pendant and a ring. The stone setting featured on each item will be chosen by you, as you design each piece, and there will be a range of white and coloured cubic zirconia (lab grown stones) to choose from.
This course is ideal as a progression from a taster/beginners’ workshop as you’ll learn how to measure and size your ring correctly, allowing for clay shrinkage; how to prepare the mandrel to take your clay and how to make a seamless ring shank whilst incorporating your stone. Alongside this project, you’ll also make a pendant which could feature a pretty texture or unusual shape in addition to your inclusion - the choice is yours!
Your ring will be kiln fired for maximum strength and you’ll torch fire your pendant, before each are polished, ready to wear home.
This workshop is suitable for those aged 16+.
