Setting Glass Cabochons in Precious Metal Clay with Doris King
Students will create a unique, textured pendant in Precious Metal Clay and learn to bezel-set a glass or stone cabochon. Precious Metal Clay is pure silver or gold mixed with an organic non-toxic binder. The binder gives the metal the flexibility to be formed, molded, and textured. It is then fired in a kiln where the organic binder burns off and the pure fine silver or gold design remains.

Wednesdays, April 6, 2022 & April 13, 2022
