Let Jean show you the ease and beauty of sawing and enameling as you create a stunning one-of-a-kind pendant necklace out of copper and glass enamel. All pendants will be round to accommodate the tree shape. Several sizes will be available. You will learn design techniques, tab setting, copper patina, metal embellishing, torch enameling, and gain instruction in using a jeweler's saw. Some experience using a jeweler's saw would be helpful, but not required. Each student will leave with a finished necklace. Beginners are welcome!
