In this fun and relaxing class, students can browse through a large collection of vintage brass stampings and use their favorites to construct beautiful pendants and/or earrings with a nostalgic feel. We will discuss and practice filling the stampings with clay, and discover useful tricks for removing our dried pieces from the stampings without breakage. Students will learn how to set fireable CZs of various shapes and sizes in silver clay, and can incorporate these stones into their pieces. We will learn to construct several kinds of bails, and discover how to incorporate fireable posts into earrings.
