Craft fine jewelry from the comfort of home with mixed media artist Sherri Haab. In this workshop, Sherri teaches the foundation skills for precious metal clay and sends you to work on five fun projects. Sherri finds patterning possibilities everywhere – in lace, leaves, bubble wrap, textiles and tree branches.
You'll transfer these designs to clay and create your own using stamps, homemade molds, cookie cutters, scissors and your bare hands. She helps you master delicate tools like blades and needles and even teaches a few tricks with pliers and a hammer. Her flexible methods allow you to refine edges and details as you go, and she adds a striking finish to each piece with patinas, gemstones, dichroic glass or a simple high silver shine.
By the end of the workshop, you'll have a bracelet, pendant, ring, pin and earrings – a complete, hand-crafted set of sparkling silver and gold. To make accessories that truly fit your friends, family and self, join Sherri Haab in Precious Metal Clay Jewelry.
