In Eye of the Beholder, you will create a beautiful one-of-a-kind torch-fired enameled pendant necklace. You will discover the magic of crackle-effect enamels in creating your domed enameled cabochon focal piece which will be tab set in a nickel silver hand-crafted backplate. Some sawing skills would be helpful, but not necessary. Several sized pendants will be offered.
