This is an offcial description of the workshop:
"In this class you will learn to make an openwork, romantic pendant, adorned with a bezel set stone and precise, tiny ornaments. You will use silver clay to create lacy, yet strong and secure constructions, which you’ll decorate with extremely detailed tiny leaves, flowers, forest fruits or other ornaments of your choice. You will also learn to make a box like, elevated base for a stone and set it in a bezel setting. All these skills can be easily adapted to your own style, merged with your favourite techniques and used with different metal clays. Openwork designs are wonderful response to increasing silver prices, allowing you to save on material, but not on the quality of your works. Some previous silver clay experience is necessary."
And here are a few bigger projects I made using this technique:
|"Herbarium - Misty Morning" - silver, green quartz, topaze|
|"Herbarium - spring rainbow" - ACS silver and labradorite|
|"Herbarium - blackberry" - ACS silver and amethyst|
|"Herbarium - summer scent" - silver, 22 K gold, labradorites|
|"Herbarium - forest flame" - fine silver and labradorite|
|"Herbarium - forest fruits" - silver, amethyst and garnet|
|"Herbarium - raspberry" - bronze ring with garnet|
|"Herbarium - gold vines" - bronze and olivine|
P.S. I'll also teach this class in Poland soon. More news coming.
