02/09/2019 - Tucson, AZ
Class: Solid Silver Trio of Temple Bells. 9:00am-4:30pm with 1 hr break
Feb 2-8, 2019 I will be teaching a variety of Traditional Wire Jewelry Classes at The Tucson Bead Show, location: Casino Del Sol, 5655 West Valencia Rd, Tucson, AZ in Booth #276 - Grand Ballroom Foyer. Classes are limited to 10 seats!
Two of your favorite instructors have teamed up to bring you a great combo class! Beginning with Master Art Clay Instructor, Jackie Truty, each student will use a premade core of wood to personally design a solid silver Temple Bell. First you will roll out Art Clay Silver and then learn how to create and then overlap small pieces to develop your design. After firing your bell, you will finish the piece and have a one hour lunch break.
After lunch students will work with Master Wire Jewelry Instructor, Dale Cougar Armstrong, to turn the bell into a pendant and then create matching earrings. Graceful and sophisticated, these lightweight earrings are sure to become one of your “go-to” designs when you are looking for something just a little bit different. Using sterling silver chain, wire and a choice of garnet, amethyst, or jade gemstone beads, each student will personalize their Trio of Solid Silver Temple Bells and wear them out of class.
The $185.00 class fee includes teacher fees, all necessary silver wire, chain, findings, gemstone beads, Art Clay Silver, wood form, use of tools, kilns and materials.
Special Notes or requirements: Please bring a notebook and pen, your camera, and if needed eye magnification. Instructors will have tools for everyone to use in class, or you may bring your own: flat, chain and round nose pliers; wire cutters; foot long ruler. Cancellation policy: no refunds will be given after January 5, 2019.
